History in a Pecan Shell

Titled on a land grant dating from 1835, Gusher came into being in 1904 shortly after two of East Texas’ biggest oil strikes – the Saratoga and Batson Fields. (See Batson, Texas) The fields, discovered in 1901 and 1903 (respectively) made Gusher’s prospects look good. A post office opened in 1904 but there were few buyers for the town lots. The post office closed in 1906 and by the end of the decade the site was deserted.
