UncoveringPA.com writer, and owner, Jim Cheney has spent more than 300 days crisscrossing the state and has visited more than 1,000 different places in every county of PA.

For Venango County, he chose the Drake Well Museum as the one place to visit, though certainly not the only place worth visiting in the area. When explaining his decision, Cheney said, “Few know that the world’s oil industry started right here in Pennsylvania. The Drake Well Museum on the northern edges of Venango County marks the spot where this earth-changing industry began. Visitors can see the site of the original well, early oil drilling equipment, and a great museum about the history of the oil industry.”

Unlike many websites, the writers on UncoveringPA.com, principally owner Jim Cheney, travel to each and every place that they write about, so readers can be assured that the opinions expressed are based on personal experiences and not simply on internet research.

In our local region, some of Cheney’s other top choices include the Forest Cathedral Hiking Trails in Cook Forest State Park in Clarion County, Sherman Memorial Lighthouse in Forest County, Rimrock Overlook in Warren County, the PennDot Road Sign Sculpture Garden in Crawford County, Fonthill Castle in Mercer County, Maridon Museum in Butler County, and Yellow Dog Village in Armstrong County
