This was a very interesting and informative Harvest Host stop. Everything you ever wanted to know about oil drilling and petroleum products can be found here. There is a great history behind the petroleum industry. Here is some information from the past.
One of the most interesting displays shows all the products we use daily that require petroleum in order to produce them.
The facility also had a field of many oil rigs from the past.
Oil drilling was a very dangerous job, especially when it came to driving the truck with nitroglycerin.
One display at the museum was quite interesting. It was an oil drilling ‘lego’ city was built entirely by students.
Seeing this museum brought with it the reality that without petroleum most of those items we are comfortable with could no longer be made.
