Oil Springs Social History Project

In preparation for the 2011 UNESCO World Heritage Site Designation bid, Lambton County’s Oil Museum of Canada is undertaking a new project. The Oil Springs Social History Project will explain what the community of Oil Springs looked like when its population exploded as a result of the discovery of ‘Black Gold’. Described as a site of great national and international significance, the oil fields continue to flow today using much of the technology which made this sleepy town a bustling community in the 1850s and 60s.
