Preserving Our Region's Oil History
The Muddy Creek Oil Field
The Muddy Creek Oil Well is an award-winning restoration site of an antique oil well. The Bessemer Gas Engine and Marshall-Barr No.19 oil well equipment is restored and open for visitors to hear and see the industry that powered this region. So come out and see the Bessemer engine pump some Pennsylvania crude! The well operates from 11:00 AM until 4:00 PM on second Saturdays of the month, May through October. The central powerhouse site is located beyond the State Parks Region 2 office, 195 Park Road, Prospect PA, (Old 422 off Route 528). Follow Signs. Open dates are dependent on volunteer availability and weather conditions.
