Oil Camp House

In the summer of 1998, an oil camp house was added to the museum collection. It is the heart of an exhibit portraying oil camp life during the 1930s and 1940s. Much attention was drawn to Tomball when Coronet Magazine published a multi-page pictorial presentation dubbed Oil Town, U.S.A., depicting life in the Humble Oil Camp and Tomball. The well head from the discovery well in the Tomball area is located adjacent to the camp house, as is a pumper's office known as the doghouse.
