What Bert Has To Say About Tyler Metro Area

Tyler is the commercial and cultural capital of the East Texas region, a large area of “piney woods” and traditions more reminiscent of the South than the dry, dusty plains Texas is more famous for. The area came to prominence with the huge oil boom of the 1920’s and 1930’s, and that wealth and exuberance left an imprint on the city core still evident today.
