Civil War: Burning Springs oil and raids

March 1, 2014
By DAVE McKAIN (dlmckain@yahoo.com)

Over the last three years several of these columns have mentioned events at Burning Springs in Wirt County. We are particularly interested in Burning Springs because of its historic importance, both to the oil and gas industry history, but also to Civil War history. The Oil and Gas Museum has built and manages a park there. Significant is that Burning Springs was, in effect, an extension of Parkersburg, in that it was citizens from Parkersburg who were the central characters in its history.
