The Pioneer Oil Museum of New York, Inc., believing that knowledge and understanding of the local oil and gas industries are vital to the heritage of this area, will preserve the history and legacy of these businesses.

The Pioneer Oil Museum is located in what used to be the McEwen Brothers Oilfield Supply Store, in the heart of the old “Allegany Oil Field”.
The oil fields of Cattaraugus and Allegany Counties are the northernmost extensions of the nation’s oldest oil-producing region; Northwestern Pennsylvania. For over a century the “Penn Grade” fields of Appalachia have been the source of the world’s finest lubricating oils
