Anderson, Indiana and the Great Gas Boom

May 21, 2017

Each episode, we choose a random county from an atlas of the continental USA and try to find the most interesting history, folklore and stories about it. On our very first episode, the pen falls on Anderson, Indiana and leads us to delve into the Great Indiana Gas Boom of the late 19th century. When a massive reservoir of natural gas was found below eastern Indiana, a bonanza of industry and profit followed. Unfortunately, so did waste and wild excess. Join us as we tell the story of Indiana's brief tenure as natural gas capital of the world
