Throughout more than 200 years of history, Tyler County has been a center of commercial transportation, energy production, manufacturing innovation and trade.

From the discovery in 1894 of the largest oil and natural gas field of the day, and throughout the 1920’s, Tyler County was the bustling center of the world’s oil and natural gas industry. Today, Tyler County is once again on the forefront of opportunity thanks to the wealth contained in the Marcellus and Utica Shale formations within reach of new exploration and production technologies.

The energy of Tyler County is not limited to the natural resources contained beneath its green hills and valleys. Tyler County has a historic tradition of fostering innovation, from new manufacturing processes and midstream processing of oil and gas, to improved transportation efficiency and workforce preparation through highly recognized public education.
