A short drive off US 67 to an historic oil well. This was the discovery well for the Permian Basin

This is a unique place! It is the site of the discovery well in the Permian Basin. I believe the old well has been plugged, but the old derrick, walking beam and motor shed are in place. (They may be replicas) Very interesting.
