Welcome to Oil City ...

Although we found mention of Oil City during our research, we really don't have any information about it.<1> Given the context of how Oil City was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists.

We've added Oil City to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Oil City - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Oil City, please Contact Us.




Time Zone: The area where we believe that Oil City might be (or was) located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time. The time zone in French: MST- Heure Normale des Rocheuses (HNR), MDT- Heure Avancée des Rocheuses (HAR).

Communities Also Named Oil City ...

Using our Gazetteer, we have found that there are 18 communities that are also named Oil City - they are located in California, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma (2), Ontario, Pennsylvania (2), Texas, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went north past Oil City and then turned east". While Oil City could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Oil City as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. The community might still exist or it might have existed for just a short period of time. Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, families in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc.

Also keep in mind that Oil City could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong . Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community.
