Come hear the oral history and research from our latest Local History Spotlight: Women During the Oil Boom, or the “gusher age.”
This was the period of the early 20th century (1901 - 1940) when Texas experienced an expansion of urban development, and economic/socioeconomic growth from oil drilling.
We’ve been delving into the Genealogy stacks to bring you interesting tidbits, stories, and facts about the women of this period, including those right here in East Texas.
Special guest speaker Olivia Moore from the East Texas Oil Museum will also present her local history research for us!
Meet us on May 25 at the library.
Presentation starts at 6:00 PM.
All ages. Free to attend!
