Gaston Museum

Memories Of A Bygone Era

The largest Oil Boom brought the largest Rural School in the world in the 1930's.  The old school is just a piece of the legacy that was left from the East Texas Oil Boom. Our museum honors the Life before and After the Oil and all that the Gaston School afforded those who passed through its hallowed halls.
