1. The City of Gladewater Marker
Inscription.  

Gladewater was incorporated on March 19, 1931 after two previous attempts had failed, one in 1873, the year the town was founded. The incorporation was a result of the discovery of oil and the need for an organized form of government. The city operated with a commission form of government until 1955, when it changed to a city manager form. The first mayor was B.F. Phillips, who served from 1931 to 1932. Lee Vickers was the first city manager, who served from 1955 to 1959.
