Never Forget 9-11-2001, We Must Remember Them

While sitting in a booth in the White's Snack Shop building, surrounded by Gaston Museum exhibits, talking with John Sallee and Barbara Barton about the East Texas oil boom days John said,

" Everyone has heard of the East Texas oil boom, but do they know about the real living conditions of the average working class family who made this possible? "

Located in Joinerville, Texas, Gateway to the East Texas Oil Field, the Gaston Museum presents life in the East Texas Oil Field from the 1930's through 1960's. With the only known surviving Tent House, museum visitors may truly step back in time and see how people lived during the 1930 oil boom.

With the discovery well, the Daisy Bradford # 3 just 2 miles away, a visit to the Gaston Museum is a must during your tour of the East Texas Oil Field and the East Texas Oil Museum in Kilgore, Texas. We invite you to come see us.
