Inscription.  The Strake-Gray Roughneck Bunkhouse was relocated from 11585 Duffey Lane, Conroe, Tx on August 23, 2015 and placed near the Strake-Gray Oilfield House in the Museum Complex of the Heritage Museum of Montgomery County. Clyde Thomas "Dolly" Gray's family, Sarah Bess Gray Crow, Mary Emily Gray Garcia, and Arrel Thomas Gray donated the Roughneck Bunkhouse, as well as, the Oilfield House (re-named Strake-Gray Oilfield House) to the Heritage Museum of Montgomery County.

The Roughneck Bunkhouse was used by employees working for Strake Oil Company. At the end of the Roughneck's shift, he would sleep in the Bunkhouse and when they returned to the oilfield, the next group of roughnecks would sleep in the Bunkhouse. The "little house or roughneck bunkhouse" was located in the family's backyard. Later, the Gray family stored the Strake Wildcat and the Conroe Wildcat baseball equipment in the Roughneck House. This building represents the era of the Oil Industry in Montgomery County during the early 1930's.
