Most historians agree that Texas was the birthplace of the modern oil industry. When Anthony F. Lucas brought in the Spindletop gusher on 1/10/1901 using the rotary drilling method, it ushered in a new era of oil production. This map locates all of the significant oil discoveries in Texas from the beginning in 1866 through the 1950s. Early refineries and pipelines are also shown as well as diagrams of cable tool and rotary drilling rigs.
