Monahans was ground zero for a West Texas oil boom in 1928. So much crude was pumped out of the ground that there weren't enough barrels to store it. Shell Oil Company had an idea. It built one big barrel. Today it's known as the Million Barrel Museum. "Barrel" describes its capacity, not its shape; it's actually a giant dish dug into the earth, 35 feet deep, paved with cement. It originally had an elaborate vaulted wooden roof.

It was one installation in a system of forts along the Texas frontier to protect and encourage settlement in north central and west Texas. The 55 buildings, many made of stone and cottonwood lumber, fell into disrepair. Thanks to an intrepid group of Jacksboro residents, the fort was declared a state historic site in 1963 and came under the management of the Texas Parks
