Replacement Windows in Petrolia
The town of Petrolia put itself on the map internationally back in in 1857 when James Miller found some ‘tar’ lying around and he began to distill it. What he didn’t know at the time was he had discovered ‘Black Gold’ or oil. That started an energy revolution that still powers our economy to this day. The town adopted the sobriquet of ‘Canada’s Victorian Oil Town’ and it led to the development of oil extraction from the ground. As the townsfolk who worked in the industry became proficient at the extraction of oil they took their skills all over the world to show different countries how to take advantage of the new found resource to help build an expanding economy.
For those who were born in Petrolia and worked in the oil industry, they were given the nickname ‘Hard Oils’ that paid tribute to those who came before them and worked in the oil industry. The town saw many booms and busts over the course of the next 100 years and the wells in the area are still pumping crude for refinement and use in many areas of our economy.
Petrolia is home to a National Historic Site of Canada, Victoria Hall, built as a municipal building in the late 1890’s was converted to town hall and the Victoria Playhouse after a fire subsequently gutted the building and it was restored to house the playhouse.
