The Gaston Museum, outside Henderson focuses on life during the oil boom era. It is located near the site of the Daisy Bradford #3, which helped establish the East Texas Oil Field in 1930. The museum is presently housed in the 1940 era White Snack Shop building which showcases the a special time when people worked hard, lived in humble surroundings, experienced the overnight explosion of the largest oil strike in East Texas and the largest Rural School in the world at that time. Also on site, visitors may tour the Sid White family home, once an ‘oil field tent house’ converted into a permanent dwelling and a 1930 era Dixie Service Station is also on the museum site. All buildings have original furnishings.
