150 Years Ago Today
This is the earliest account of the King Well that I’ve yet found.
It comes to us as a reprinted article from the London Free Press.
This is probably the single most fact filled article about the well available. Subsequent ones will fill in more details. But, this is the closest thing to a comprehensive account of the well and this is why it is included on the interpretive sign that the Petrolia150 committee just installed on Discovery Line.
Lots more to come…
