We moved to east Texas in 1986 and Kilgore has always been our favorite place. When we lived in Tyler, we came over here to eat more than the places there. Places like the Country Tavern and the Hacienda.

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.

The city has went to great lengths in recent years to bring vitality back to downtown Kilgore. It has worked. It is very pretty and usually at least a couple of times a month, there is something going on.

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.
