Former Homesite of
Joseph S. Cullinan
Pioneer in Texas Oil
???At age 14 Joseph S. Cullinan (1860-1937)
began his career as a laborer
in the Pennsylvania oilfields.
After the Corsicana oil discovery
in 1894, Cullinan played a major
role in the early development
of the field. A daring business
leader, he moved his operation
to new fields and organized
companies, including Texaco, to
meet the needs of the growing
oil and gas industry. He influenced
legislation to prevent abuse and
to provide conservation measures.
His foresight in exploration,
production, refining, and marketing
helped establish Texas as a
leader in the petroleum industry.
