The Kilgore Historical Preservation Foundation was founded in 1987 to preserve and restore the unique oil derrick skyline of boomtown Kilgore. Initially concerned about vanishing derricks, the foundation has evolved into protecting the unique heritage of Kilgore as well. We are a volunteer organization that preserves and promotes the history of Kilgore.
It’s a great time to be a member of KHPF! We invite you to join us as we begin another exciting year of promoting Kilgore, “To honor Kilgore’s unique history as a railroad and oil boom town by restoring and maintaining its iconic ‘boomtown’ skyline, preserving its historic buildings and landmarks, and documenting its history in print and assessable archive collections”.
Let’s continue working together to make our “City of Stars” shine even brighter!
