Jackson Township - Drilling For Oil

In Jackson Mills, Jackson Township, one may find an immense wheel, piles of cable, and rusty machinery where, not too many years ago, two men ffom Rhode Island drilled for oil. They leased acres and acres of land in Monmouth, Mercer, and Ocean Counties and spent two thousand dollars to finance the project. They drilled down five thousand feet finding nothing more than water.
