Welcome to the Pioneer Oil Museum of New York. The museum
website has adopted a color scheme based on the colors used on the label of 'Bolivar Motor Oil' cans.
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 museum will act as a repository for significant
artifacts used throughout Allegany and Cattaraugus Counties. The museum will house in a readily central location, articles and
information of historical value or interest pertaining to these industries. It will accumulate and display materials relevant to the
local industries. Realizing that the success and operations of the local fields were not possible without a dedicated workforce,
the museum will honor the men who were pioneers in these endeavors. The museum will provide educational resources for local
schools and colleges, as well as a research facility for any persons involved in investigations of these industries.
