On THIS DAY In History, The Unthinkable Happened In Texas

Okay, so maybe not unthinkable, but it’s still pretty neat. Texas has played a big role in the oil industry for a long time, the most notable example being Spindletop. But I bet you didn’t know that every time you pump your gas at an Exxon station, you’re buying from a company that has its roots in our state. Without the Magnolia Petroleum Company, who knows where our entire nation would be today? Most likely nowhere good.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
