BEAUMONT, TX AIR CONDITIONING REPAIR & SERVICE
History of Beaumont
During the town's earliest years, Beaumont was home to many farmers and cattle raisers. In the late 1800s, the town's economy grew around rice-milling and lumber. An oil explosion at the Lucas Gusher on Spindletop Hill in 1901 clued residents in to the valuable natural resource available underneath their land. That year, Beaumont saw a dramatic spike in population, going from 9,000 residents in January to 30,000 residents by March. Dozens of oil companies were created and the site at Spindletop Hill became America's largest oil field in history. Today, the city promotes modern growth while still working to preserve its historic origins.
Beaumont has an area of 85.9 square miles. It is situated 30 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico and is also located close to the Neches River, East Texas, Pine Island Bayou and Trinity Island. Beaumont is also located in the Pineywoods Forest, a large coniferous forest that covers 54,400 square miles across Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana and Oklahoma.
