Petrolia

Billed as "Canada's Victorian Oil Town", Petrolia in Ontario is often credited with starting the world oil industry. Today oil is still pumping in the Oil Springs and Petrolia fields driven by a central power plant with jerker rods reaching out to each well, just as it was in the early ca.1850s.

At Petrolia such a field comprising of 60 acres has been set aside as a living museum, a major historic recreational exhibit. Here wells are being restored and the visitor will see crude oil as it was drawn from the ground from the beginning.billed as "Canada's Victorian Oil Town", Petrolia in Ontario is often credited with starting the world oil industry.
