Title, side A
Bremen Oil Boom
Text, side A
The Bremen Oil Boom commenced in 1907-'08 and the town became a center in the region's petroleum industry. The area was a forest of oil derricks. From this point south, it was said that one could go down Broad Street from derrick to derrick and not touch the ground. A reconstructed derrick, erected to commemorate Bremen's sesquicentennial in 1984, may be seen in Howell Park directly east of this marker.
