Drake Well Museum and Park: Pennsylvania Trail of History Guide

Stackpole Books, 2002 - 48 Seiten
Drake Well Museum and Park in Titusville is the site of the world's first oil well and the point of origin for the modern petroleum industry. Edwin Drake's well that struck oil on August 27, 1859, revealed that drilling was an effective way to produce large quantities of crude oil. When speculators followed, the industry boomed in the region. Within a short time, oil drilling became a worldwide phenomenon. The guidebook discusses the oil industry in Pennsylvania, focusing on the story of Drake and the industry in Oil Creek Valley, and concludes with a tour of the museum and the grounds.
