Brief DescriptionCome see where the industry that puts a drop of oil in your life every day was born.
DescriptionCome see where the industry that puts a drop of oil in your life every day was born. A steam engine whistle calls you to the replica of Edwin Drake's 1859 engine house, where oil from the famous well flows into a never filling barrel. Follow squeaking rod lines to learn how pioneer oil workers used one engine to pump many wells. They invented a whole new industry. Don't forget your camera. Feed plastic apples to Ed and Dan in the Oil Transportation building as you wait for the Nitro truck to explode. Walk the path along Oil Creek to the Oil Pits where Native Americans collected oil even before Columbus came to the new world. You might see bald eagles fishing for trout in the creek. Listen to stories of life in oil boomtown days told by videos, tour guides, working antique machinery, and historic buildings. Smell oil from wells around the world. Make plastic. Play old fashion games. Wear your sneakers. Bring your bike. And pack a picnic lunch.
