A Year in the Life-Oil Speculation in Adair County, 1904-1905, or Oil Fever...

Mike Watson: Magnum Opus of the local oilfields: The most comprehensive documents about the oil industry in Adair & Metcalfe Counties, Kentucky, in any periodical to date; the story of the founding of the Big Trend News in Edmonton and numerous items about the activities of the Big Trend Oil Company.
NOTE: An earlier version was truncated, at launch; this version is complete

Oil is not a new thing for us, the first well of note here was brought in more than a century and a half ago, but who wanted oil then--water and salt were more important, and valuable. See how we waxed and waned through the eyes of The Adair County News in 1904 and 1905.
