Abstract:

The history of the Jackson gas field is especially interesting because Eugene W. Hilgard recognized and described the dome in 1860 at the same time that Colonel Drake was drilling the oil well in the world on Oil Creek in Pennsylvania. The report also describes in detail the beds penetrated in the deep test well.
