The history of El Dorado
Ever since Captain J. Cracklin exclaimed "El Dorado!" as he took in the golden reflection of the setting sun on the Walnut River in 1857, El Dorado's history has marched in step right along with that of our country. The discovery of oil at the Stapleton #1 oil well on October 6, 1915 brought big changes to El Dorado and changed its history forever. By 1918, El Dorado Oil Field was the largest producer among single fields in the U.S.
