“Back in Time”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

Made me feel like I was back in time. Quick self-guided tour on lunch break. Would be nice to see a re-enactment... see the town come alive!

“The earliest Texas oil boom town”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

Authintic items and gives you a introduction to early oil production. If you are interested in early frontier life in Texas plus a look at how they drilled oil wells this is the place to go.

If you do not know the term and you claim to know Beaumont then you better go here. Broaden your knowledge on Beaumont history.
