McClintock Well: Oldest Producing Oil Well in in the World, Rouseville, PA Venango County

Today we visit the oldest producing oil well in the world, the McClintock Oil Well. This is only two years younger than Drake's first oil well, just twelve miles north of this location. The well has steadily produced oil for 155 years and it gives an insight into days gone by in the Oil Creek Valley. 
The McClintock Well is managed by the nearby Drake Well Museum, helping to preserve the story of the start of the oil industry.
