Black Gold Rush
On November 22, 1905, wildcatters, Robert Galbreath, Frank Chesley, and Charles Colcord, drilling for oil on farmland owned by Creek Indian Ida E. Glenn, created the first oil gusher in what would soon be known as the "Glenn Pool".
The discovery set off a boom for the area. The oil field was the richest the world had yet known, making more money than the California Gold Rush and Colorado Silver Rush combined and making Oklahoma known around the world for oil production.
