Soon after that, a small community grew up around the farm, which was named Tevis Bluff or Neches River Settlement. Later, other businesses were formed, especially in railroad construction and operation, new building construction, lumber sales, and communications.This town was named Beaumont, after Jefferson Beaumont, the brother-in-law of Henry Millard. The Port of Beaumont became a successful regional shipping center.
Beaumont is home of Lamar University, a national Carnegie Doctoral Research university with 14,966 students, including undergraduates and post graduates.
Over the years, several corporations have been based in this city, including Gulf States Utilities which had its headquarters in Beaumont until its takeover by Entergy Corporation in 1993.
In addition, Broussard founded a company to operate an irrigation system to support rice culture.
(It became a public institution, the Lower Neches Irrigation Authority.) This helped stimulate the expansion of rice cultivation from 1500 acres in 1892 to 400,000 acres in 23 counties by his death in 1956.
Spindletop became the first major oil field and one of the largest in American history.
With the discovery of oil at Spindletop, Beaumont's population more than tripled in two months from 9,000 in January 1901 to 30,000 in March 1901.
A big change occurred in 1901 with the Spindletop gusher, which demonstrated the potential of the huge oil field.
With Spindletop, several energy companies developed in Beaumont, and some continue.
The first Jewish man in the city was from Louisiana, others migrated from the South, and were joined by immigrants.
They worked as merchants and in a variety of jobs in the growing city and ranching area. Oil was discovered at nearby Spindletop on 10 January 1901.
