History

    Lewis County has a long history of natural gas productivity. In August 1893, the Lewis County Oil and Gas Company was formed. 3,500 acres of land were purchased and the first test well was dug in late 1897. The first successful well was drilled in 1900 at Copley Well No. 1, and this led to the production boom in Lewis County. Today, there are more than 1,100 people directly employed by natural gas companies. This accounts for 13.5 percent of the workforce.
