If one had asked a Texas resident on January 1, 1901, what big news of recent months had most interested him, he would have said the great Galveston hurricane of September 8, or the dawning of a new century.

If one had asked him on January 10, he would have said the great gusher at Spindletop – a salt dome about three miles south of Beaumont. Dubbed “The Lucas Gusher,” the oil discovery on Spindletop Hill changed the economy of Texas and helped to usher in the petroleum age.

Today, that history is celebrated at the Spindletop Gladys City Boomtown Museum on the Lamar University Campus in Beaumont.

Click here to view the Lucas gusher re-enactment schedule (today it shoots a giant water column into the air, giving you the idea of what an oil gusher looked like in the early days of the Spindletop era).
