Near the original Spindletop site, Gladys City, founded in 1892, quickly became a bustling factory town for wildcatters to buy leases and live while tapping into the Spindletop oil boom. In 1975, a replica of the Gladys City Boomtown was created to preserve the city's bustling beginning. Browse around the town - which includes a post office, saloon, general story, livery, working print shop and working replica gusher. On occasion, you can also see re-enactments of life during the oil boom at Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown Museum. Capture the magic of this boomtown on a self-guided tour.
