Since the Industrial Revolution, people have moved to quiet towns to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, but with all the industrialism, the small cities that were once quiet sanctuaries for those seeking tranquility, are now being infiltrated with businesses. The once quiet towns now crescendo with the sound of money flow, and the armies of people that now begin to populate the areas are not what the people expected. With all the growth, it may simply be because of the Eagle Ford Shale projects.

The Eagle Ford Shale project will bring many more businesses to local areas, making the quiet town that we love, a hustled and bustled industrialized city. According to the Wilson County News, energy dominates the agendas of the surrounding counties. Approvals for pipelines on various county roads are in the works, and with that, a business boom will soon plague our small quiet towns (courtesy of Wilson County News).

Although many people may make a small sum of money with this oil boom, is it worth industrializing the minor South Texas areas? Is it worth bringing the “Big City Lights” to the small towns? The beginning of this industrialization era is arising once again for our small quiet towns. The outcome of what’s to come is loud and boisterous, but somehow it’s “opening new doors,” but for some reason, the project that many are getting excited about possesses a sad truth. Our quiet towns and small town lives WILL be changed. Hope everyone is ready for the change. It’s coming
