History

Sulphur is named for the sulfur mines that were operated in the area in the 1900s. The sulfur was beneath several hundred feet of muck and quicksand containing deadly hydrogen sulfide gas. Repeated unsuccessful attempts to sink conventional mining shafts in the 1870s and 1880s resulted in the loss of many lives. In 1890, the German immigrant Herman Frasch invented and patented the Frash Process of mining sulfur. The first molten sulfur was brought to the surface on Christmas Eve of 1894. Sulfur soon began to be mined on an industrial scale, with the molten mineral allowed to solidify and dry in enormous vats 100 by 400 feet, then blasted and hauled by rail to the Sabine River for shipment. The Sulphur area is still mostly dependent on the oil refineries and petrochemical plants for employment. With the addition of the Cities Service (Citgo) oil refinery in 1943, the areas of Maplewood and Hollywood were developed to house refinery workers.
