Luling is a city in Caldwell County, Texas, although a small portion of the city resides in Guadalupe County. It was named after the New York banker who financed the land the city resides on as well as the construction of a railroad to the city. It was originally a railroad town but had a reputation for rowdiness due to the cowboys who brought their cattle to market on the Chisholm Trail. The rowdiness died off along with the cattle drives in the 1880s, and Luling's economy became based in cotton. The discovery of oil in the 1920s led to an economic and residential boom; by the 1930s and 1940s, the railroads had become less civically important and pulled out of Luling. Oil continued to dominate the city's economy until the 1980s.
