HISTO RY

Kilgore City of Stars Kilgore was once a quiet agricutural community, a center for the cotton and timber industries....

K Alice Lon

Van Cliburn

Roy Perry 6

ilgore has long called itself the City of Stars, and for many very good reasons. You see a myriad of stars has always shined from the City of Kilgore, and among the brightest of those stars is Van Cliburn, the internationally known classical pianist who spent his youth in Kilgore. Kilgore is also the birthplace of vocalist Alice Lon, who enjoyed widespread popularity in the 1950s as the Champagne Lady on television’s Lawrence Welk Show. Additional stars include actors and actresses who annually descend on Kilgore from such places as New York, Chicago and Los Angeles to bring splendor to the Texas Shakespeare Festival, widely known as the best Shakespeare festival in the state. Equally dedicated to their craft are the famous Kilgore College Rangerettes, who have dazzled audiences abroad, at three Presidential inaugurations, and annually at the Cotton Bowl since 1951. Kilgore itself has also been the star of the show in an episode of the television magazine productions of “Show Me Texas.” As a quiet rural community in the fall of 1930, Kilgore suddenly saw its name emblazoned across Texas after discovery of oil in and around the city. Near the heart of the East Texas oilfield, the largest in the lower 48 states, Kilgore at one time boasted a single downtown city block with the densest concentration of oil derricks in the world. In late summer 1931, as tumultuous conditions persisted in the burgeoning new “boomtown,” the state sent a star of its own, legendary Texas Ranger Manuel T. (Lone Wolf) Gonzaullas, to help restore order. And during World War II, oil from the East Texas field literally helped “fuel” the efforts of the Allies. More than 60 oil derricks dot the Kilgore skyline today, all topped with lighted stars as reminders that our country’s glorious Stars and Stripes waves free, due in large part to the contribution of East Texas oil made to victory for the Allies.

FROM AN OIL BOOMTOWN

TO A DIVERSIFIED SMALL CITY

C

onstantine Buckley “Buck” Kilgore established a townsite in 1871. A year later, the railroad built a line through the area. Thus Kilgore, the illustrious soldier, lawyer and judge of the U.S. Court, became founder of a city that would bear his name.

result of a remarkable era of capable leadership. Many of the city’s progressive improvements were completed during the twenty years following the discovery of oil, including establishment of Kilgore College and construction of Laird Memorial Hospital.

Kilgore remained a quiet hub for agriculture with a population of about 500 people for the next 54 years. People lived a simple life until the discovery of oil forever changed Kilgore and East Texas.

Oil continues to play a major role in the economy of Kilgore and joins a diversified industrial base to provide residents with a strong economy and a bright future.

Few people actually believed oil was beneath the surface of the earth in East Texas; however, a 70-year-old wildcatter, C.M. “Dad” Joiner, believed a vast pool of oil lay about 3,500 feet beneath the surface. He drilled for oil on the farm of Mrs. Daisy Bradford about eight miles south of town, and after two failed attempts, brought in the Daisy Bradford #3 on October 3, 1930. With the area clogged with vehicles and people, Joiner made history by discovering the largest oil field in the world at the time. Within weeks, thousands of people invaded Kilgore, pushing the population to 10,000. These shouting, hustling newcomers were bent on making quick fortunes in the newly discovered East Texas Oil Fields. By 1939, Kilgore had a forest of oil derricks numbering almost 1,200 inside the city limits. Though unprepared for the vast changes brought on by the oil boom of the 1930s, Kilgore’s modern history is the

“When the worlds richest acre was producing at maximum production, it could supply the entire USA’s oil needs for a year in one day.” -Mayor Ronnie Spradlin 7

he discovery of oil in East Texas changed everything in the 1930s, and nothing illustrated that more than downtown Kilgore. At Commerce and Main streets, the World’s Richest Acre was home to 24 oil wells on a 1.2 acre site. They pumped 2.5 million barrels during 30 years of production.

All but one of those wells were dismantled starting in the 1960s, but, in 1987, the Kilgore Historical Preservation Foundation began work on the World’s Richest Acre Park. Today, it features the remaining original derrick, 12 full-size restored derricks, a reconditioned pumpjack, granite monument to East Texas’ pioneer families, a miniature replica of the corner when the original wells were operational and a Texas Historical Marker. “Those derricks in that park are considered a primary lure. A primary lure is something that is unique to the downtown area as well as to anyplace in the region,” says Carol Windham, Director of Planning. The program supports downtown revitalization. “To my knowledge the skyline with the derricks and the park — nobody else anywhere has something like that. That’s what creates the primary lure. It’s dedicated to the history of Kilgore. It really brings in the history of Kilgore and how it was created.” “The park,” Windham says, “is important to downtown Kilgore and other groups because of its stage and central location.”

n April 1984, the idea for the Texas Shakespeare Festival was developed: to establish a professional summer theatre for East Texas based in Kilgore, to create a company with a name that would have broad appeal to professional theatre artists, employing high caliber actors, designers and directors from throughout the nation; and to offer professional actors and theatre students the luxury of working on plays from the world’s storehouse of dramatic literary masterpieces. Lynn Wells and her family fell in love with the Texas Shakespeare Festival at Kilgore College shortly after they moved to Longview 16 years ago. “My daughter has always loved Shakespeare since she was teeny-tiney”, Wells said. “We just fell in love with the quality of the productions.” Wells is the past-president of the Texas Shakespeare Festival Foundation, which raises money to support the festival. She first got involved as a member of the Guild, which supports the festival in other ways. “I’m just amazed at the caliber of the performances and the actors,” Wells says. “I think it’s awesome that we have professional theater sitting right here in our backyard. They (festival organizers) go all over the country to hold auditions. Thousands of people audition but only a select few are chosen and move to Kilgore Texas for a summer. The Foundation, Guild and City of Kilgore “wrap their arms” around the performers who come to perform. They’re invited to people’s home to eat and special events are planned for them throughout the season. “I think they’re just amazed at how much the people take them in and make them feel at home,” Wells says. “It’s kind of like they’re our kids and we invite them in and take care of them while they’re here. It’s a neat experience to be involved in and also to attend.”

Summer 2014 will bring the 29th season of the Texas Shakespeare Festival back to the stage of the Van Cliburn Auditorium, in the Anne Dean Turk Fine Arts Center on the Kilgore College Campus. Festival dates are June 26th - July 27th. You can visit www.texasshakespeare.com for more information.

he East Texas Oil Museum is more relevant today than when it opened in 1980.That’s the assessment the museum’s director, Joe White, offered of the museum more than three decades after he became its leader. “It explains to the visitor through various programs that we’ve installed in the last two or three years that your life is affected every second of every minute of every day by the hydrocarbons oil and gas,” White says. The museum still serves its original function, to tell the story of the East Texas Oil Field. Boomtown, USA takes visitors back in time, to the 1930s, through full-size dioramas, films, sound effects and oil field mementos. Travelers take a simulated 3,800-foot elevator ride to the oil formations to see how oil is found underground. Geological exhibits and equipment displays complete the experience. Thanks to a grant from the City of Kilgore in 2013 the museum has a new tool for visitors. A recorded walking tour, with headphones, is now available in six languages, including English, Spanish, French and German. The tour features 53 stops in the museum that will take about 1 hour and 50 minutes to complete. “We’re real excited about that because the number of our volunteers is declining, and I think it will give the visitors from overseas a much greater appreciation for what they’re seeing and experiencing in their tour,” White says. Since 1980, the oil museum has hosted 1.5 million visitors, including some 10,000 school children a year. An educational outreach program draws teachers and students from as far away as Monroe, La.; Shreveport, Dallas and elsewhere. The videos the museum offers teach people not just about oil in East Texas, but also about natural gas. One video is about George Mitchell who — like “Dad” Joiner who discovered the East Texas oil field at age 70 — was also 70 when he pioneered horizontal drilling for natural gas. “Our job is to help educate the public, most of whom come from states that do not produce hydrocarbons,” White says. “We all consume them, whether we produce it or not. We see our job as to help tell the story in a positive way, that if you shut it down, America would go down the tubes.”

THE KILGORE COLLEGE RANGERETTES & RANGERETTE SHOWCASE MUSEUM “The Rangerettes have just become the top of the (drill team) tradition and I think people like to come and see that tradition,” -Jan Jaynes, Museum Director

W

ith their trademark red, white and blue uniforms, high kicks and precision dances, the Kilgore College Rangerettes have represented Kilgore around the world for more than 70 years. The Rangerette Showcase Museum started preserving the Rangerettes’ story in 1979.“The Rangerettes have just become the top of the (drill team) tradition and I think people like to come and see that tradition,” says Jan Jaynes, museum director. The museum features films of Rangerette performances, a photo display that challenges visitors to name the famous people featured with the Rangerettes, the Rangerette Scrapbook and a lounge area that recognizes Gussie Nell Davis. Davis created the precision dance drill and was the founder and longtime director of the Rangerettes. Another exhibit in the museum features mannequins wearing the uniforms the dancers have used the over the decades. The uniforms, Jaynes says, started getting shorter in about the 1960s. “Basically, everything is the same, even though it evolves and gets better and better and the girls are more athletic than they have ever been,” she says. The dancers in 2013-2014 still care about the traditions and what happened in 1940, when the group was formed. Jaynes said the museum hopes to digitize its photo collection so those will be available for the public to see.Other than that, the next big event the museum is working toward is a couple of years away. “The Rangerettes’ 75th anniversary is is in 2015,” Jaynes says. “That’s a big year we’re working toward.”Also, a former Rangerette manager and Overton native, Chip Hale, is working on a documentary about the Rangerettes. The Los Angeles filmmaker is expected to complete “Sweethearts of the Gridiron: An American Story” in time for the 75th anniversary. The Rangerettes’ performances have included more than 50 years of appearances at the Cotton Bowl Half-Time and the fourth most recent Presidential Inauguration. In addition to half-time performances during football season, the Rangerettes are showcased in the Rangerette Revels, an annual variety show held in April, and other performances.

aseball has called historic Driller Park home in Kilgore for more than 50 years, including most recently as headquarters for the minor leage baseball team the East Texas Pump Jacks. Driller Park is located at 1912 S. Commerce St. where it straddles Gregg and Rusk counties. The park, which was built out of oil field pipe, tank steel and concrete, with an infield underground drainage system, opened on April 24, 1947. The Kilgore Baseball Club built the stadium for $100,000 on land donated to the city of Kilgore by S.S. Laird. More than 3,100 people turned out to see the first game, when the Kilgore Drillers played the Henderson Oilers. The Drillers disbanded in 1950, but the baseball stadium continued to be an important part of East Texas baseball. The Kilgore High School Bulldogs have played there for decades, and it is been the site of many high school play off games and tournaments. In 2008, the East Texas Pump Jacks brought college baseball players to the park as a new member of the Texas Collegiate League. Facility upgrades in recent years include new concession and restroom buildings, a new club house, new parking lots, an ornamental new entrance, new ticket booth and new picnic deck.
