Lots of shops and restaurants. The real attraction is all the derricks. It’s dubbed the world’s richest acre. With all of these wells it’s no wonder. Definitely worth a stop.

Strolling through downtown Kilgore is easy fun. The Million dollar acre of oil wells and derricks, the Oil Museum and some of the older city building still retain their historical charm.

The main atraction downtown is the park across from the old train station it's highlight I'd a monument to the richest acre. It has alot of oil derecks which are lit for the Christmas season with a little ceremony and fair.
