Description
Corsicana's officials were disappointed when oil was struck in 1894 during an attempt to locate a water supply for the town. Within a year not only water but also an abundance of oil had been discovered, and Corsicana became one of the first commercial oil-well and refinery sites west of the Mississippi. The rotary drill bit used in drilling operations for commercial wells was developed in Corsicana.
