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.
