What Bert Has To Say About Longview Metro Area


Longview is a small city in eastern Texas about 130 miles east of Dallas. Marshall is a small but culturally and historically rich former boom town an additional 35 miles east. Originally a transportation center for nearby agriculture and timber industries, the Longview-Marshall area prospered from the oil booms of the 1920’s and 1930’s, and Longview has a sizable, downtown, historic area (“One Hundred Acres of History”).
