Kilgore, Texas: The World's Richest Acre

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Texas is the USA's biggest source of oil.  While the first oil strike in Texas occurred near Houston in 1901, what really put the state on the map was the discovery of the giant East Texas oilfield in 1930.  The riches from this massive hydrocarbon find in northeast Texas made the town of Kilgore one of the country's wealthiest for a time.   In this video, Light and Drawing uses a drone to give us an aerial look at this small town which hit it big when the famed Daisy Bradford No. 3 well blew in on October 3, 1930.
