    The City of Kilgore

    Though Overton is small, the nearby town of Kilgore has a lot to offer.

    At Kilgore College is the East Texas Oil Museum, which showcases the unique history of East Texas oil country and features actual antiques donated by East Texas citizens. Visitors can also explore Boomtown, USA, a themed town of stores, people, animals, and machinery.

    If oil doesn’t interest you, the Texas Museum of Broadcasting and Communications focuses on vintage broadcasting memorabilia and equipment. One major exhibit is the “Lee Harvey Oswald” camera that was present at Oswald’s assassination.

    In Historic Downtown Kilgore, visitors can experience more of the rich history associated with the East Texas oil boom. The area is home to various boutiques, local restaurants, and the "World's Richest Acre Park," where the greatest concentration of oil wells in the world once stood.
