On my way back home from Erie today, I stopped by the Drake Well, which is located near Titusville, PA and was the first oil well drilled in the U.S. around 1859.

The park itself was closed when I came through so I could not get pictures of all of the artifacts but it was neat to see.

Yepper, the Drake well was the start up of the oil industry in the US.
