  • Railroads and farming
  • On january 10, 1901 near Spindletop Hill,or otherwise known as Big Hill. A giant plume of oil shooting into the air,there was so much it could be seen from more than 10 miles away! This marked the beginning of the Texas oil boom.
  • Railroads and farming
  • With large quantites of oil being produced at once, it met more than the national demand. As a result, the price of oil dropped,it even hit a all time low of 3 cents in 1902. Many of the new companies, went out of business because their wells dried up, however, the ones that survived grew into major businesses.
  • Railroads opened up new areas for commercial farming. Spur lines were extended off main lines into regions where cotton was/could be grown. Railroad companies offered lower rates for shipping cotton and built large cotton loading platforms at each railroad stop. They even let them ship fruits, rice and vegetables.
  • Though the soil in west texas was very rich, it was quite hard on the surface. John deere’s deep steel plow was a tremendous help for this problem, by being able to break through the hard soil. Another machine was a thresher ,which was used to separate grains and seed from plants,it made harvesting crops faster and easier.
