Historical Marker of First Oil Well In Hidalgo County

I did a quick stop and took the following pictures of the historical marker of the first oil well in Hidalgo County. The well that the marker refers to was drilled on what used to be originally Porcion 40 given to Jose Antonio Castaneda, but when oil was discovered in 1934 it was on land that now belonged to Ed W. (Captain) Sullivan. The well was named after the driller of the well Otto Woods.

John M. Lawrence No. 1 oil well was brought in September 18, 1934, near this site by veteran driller Otto C. Woods. Well flowed 1,000 or more barrels a day. At first the oil formed a lake beside the well. County has produced 20 million barrels of oil. (1968)

Cotton field behind marker, where location of well must
have been.
