Description
 
BUSINESS DIRECTORY OF PITHOLE CITY, 1865-1866. Reprinted 2006 by Oil Region Alliance, Intro by Neil McElwee. The first directory of this area, it lists approximately 1,200 individuals and businesses in Pithole, and includes business advertisements of the time. It also contains listings for three smaller communities nearby: Balltown, Dawson Center and Prather City. In late 1865, Pithole was a hastily built boomtown of boarding houses, hotels, saloons, transient men and horses. Pithole was riding high on the crest of a great wave of oil production. In late 1865, when the editor of this directory compiled his listings, he could not have imagined the field's imminent collapse not long after, one that happened so quickly and completely. Fold-out map included. 61 pages, 5 x 8 Softbound.
