Central Texas Oil Patch Museum in Luling,Texas
Every time we go to Luling for the delicious barbecue, we mention how interesting it would be to visit the Oil Patch Museum. Finally did so – and it is most interesting.
Our bread and butter was related to the oil industry for so many years (paid for four college educations – three kids and me).
Oil is still being produced in the Luling area (see all of the pumps working away every time we visit). I really didn’t know much about Edgar B. Davis until viewing the video at the museum. Riley Froh, Luling author, briefly spoke about the largess of Davis to Luling, Texas, the arts, and the place of Davis’ birth, Brockton, Massachusetts .
An interesting and worthwhile visit!
