World's Richest Acre Park
This half-block in downtown Kilgore is a unique, one of a kind place that pays tribute to the town’s oil boom days. The block had 24 wells that pumped more than 2.5 million barrels of oil over a 30 year period. The park features one original as well as more than 70 restored oil derricks with stars atop them that are lit during the Christmas season. Oil wells were drilled on street corners and numbered close to 1,200 at the height of the boom.
