History & History Related Items

When the Hull oilfield was discovered in 1918, this community of Daisetta was founded. Both Hull and Daisetta were towns dependent on oil. It was named by Newt Farris, a local businessman after two women, Daisy Barrett and Etta White. The post office here opened in 1921. Though Daisetta was virtually destroyed by a large fire in 1924, it was rebuilt. Though the town was made new, the oil production went down, having an effect on the local economy. The population dropped as the oil production did the same. From a population of 3,000, the number of residents has declined to 1,764 in 1950, 1,177 inn 1980 and now to 1,034.
