Bolivar in Allegany County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)

Historic New York
The oil produced here is only a small share of the total national petroleum product, but it is so superior in lubricant quality that it always brings top prices. Oil and natural gas are still produced but dairying and livestock raising have taken over as the major economic activities.
