Santa Rita Oil Rig


Austin, Texas (TX), US
In 1923, the Santa Rita No. 1 oil well, in Reagan County discovered oil on university land; in the following decades, the revenue made the University of Texas among the best-endowed in the nation.

In more recent years, the oil rig was moved to the university's campus in Austin.
