Shreveport was founded in 1836, when the Shreve Town Company was formed to develop a town at the head of the navigable section of the Red River and the overland route into a part of Mexico, soon to become the Republic of Texas. It was a major riverboat port, as you might expect, and remained primarily a transportation hub until oil was discovered in Louisiana in the 19th century. It soon became a major player in the oil and gas industry, and the headquarters of the companies which would become known as ExxonMobil and Pennzoil were located in Shreveport until the latter half of the 20th century, when the city began efforts to diversify its economy.
