Set off the gusher for a perfect backdrop for pictures and to see the history of the oil boom in Beaumont, Texas.

Plan a Reenactment

Put yourself back in the early 1900s at the Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown Museum with a reenactment. Actors will dress up in traditional garb and host a shootout, serve you drinks at the saloon, have games and activities of that time to entertain your guests.

Spindletop history as actors portray a shootout at the anniversary celebration.

Set off the Gusher

The replica gusher at the Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown Museum is a sight to behold. The replica oil derrick (now substituted with water) blows 100 feet high just like the gusher that erupted on January 10, 1901, flowing at 80,000 to 100,000 barrels a day, setting off the Texas oil boom.
