Trails & Tales of Boomtown USA
Take a guided tour through Burkburnett's rich historic past. This fascinating tour recalls the oil-boom days with visits to oil fields, outdoor oil musuem and replica of Mabl Gilvert's dugout (the first white settler to the region). Back at the turn of the 20th century, residents said the oil derricks that sprang up were so close together it was almost possible to walk across town from derrick to derrick without ever touching the ground. The 1941 movie, "Boomtown," with Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy, was based on thsoe wild oil-boom days of Burkburnett.
