The Big Spring Convention & Visitors Bureau is pleased to announce it has received a $50,000 donation from Occidental Petroleum. This donation will be used to support the Restoration Project at the Historic Spring Site. Phase 1 of the project, designed by Kelly Cook of KDC Associates, has recently been completed and has restored and improved the area around our Historic Spring. The Spring site has a significant historical value, and this project will help to educate visitors about the important history associated with the site and the importance to the development of West Texas.
Occidental officials will be in Big Spring at the Historic Spring Site on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. to present the donation.
