Oil Springs received a National Historic Site designation in 1925 from the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada. The Museum is located on the site of a rare industrial landscape that marks the beginnings of the oil industry in Canada. This site is credited with a handful of national and international achievements. Registration of the world’s first petroleum company, first commercial oil well in North America, first commercial oil field in the world, and first oil and gas gushers in Canada, to name a few.
