Energy Education Resources, Museum News, Exhibits and Events
For more than a decade, AOGHS has linked community oil and gas museums and county historical societies with state energy education resources and national energy education resources. AOGHS is in the business of preserving petroleum history, which provides a context for understanding the modern energy industry. A sole proprietorship business, the historical society depends on your support. Please contact Bruce Wells, AOGHS founder and executive director at firstname.lastname@example.org for information about top membership and sponsors of $1,000 and above.
