World's Only Main Street Oil Well
This oil well is in the middle of main street in Barnsdall. It has a sign which says that it is the only main street oil well in the world. Anyone can visit at any time, since it is in the street. It is just the pump jack part of the oil well, with no tall oil derrick, but it's certainly unusual.[Kathy Doss, 04/18/2004]
