Help keep this online oil history resource operating! 

When you support this unique website, you help add more oil and gas history stories, which builds our research database for educators, students, oil museums – and you. AOGHS links community oil and gas museums and county historical societies with state energy education resources and national energy education resources. AOGHS is in the business of preserving petroleum history, which provides a context for understanding the modern energy industry. A sole proprietorship business, the society depends on your support.
