Pennsylvania’s Oil Region is rich with history. It was within the Oil Region that, in 1859, Colonel Edwin Drake drilled the world’s first commercial oil well, initiating a chain of events that literally changed the world.

But that’s our history. Welcome to the future – your future. Welcome to the Oil Region Alliance, the designated lead economic, heritage and tourism development group in the Oil Region.
