Allow at least one and one-half hours for the self guided tour with a printed “Tour Guide” to move you through the two buildings housing thousands of items. Printed explanations are attached to the displays. There will be several volunteers from the County Line Historical Society available to answer any questions. We know of no museum dedicated to the oil and gas industry to have as much on display and as well done as this unique museum. Ken Miller spent most of his adult life collecting these tools of the trade he served. The photos above and at right show how vast the collection of the early oil & gas industry displays are and these photos represent a small corner of just one of the buildings. Museum is Wheelchair accessible.
