When Indiana coal miners hit natural gas in 1876, the roar of the escaping gas frightened them so badly that they plugged and abandoned the hole. The accessibility and size of the underground gas field they stumbled into became apparent in the mid 1880’s — and started one of the most consequential economic booms in American history. It's legacy includes the local glass and automotive industries, and one of Indiana's great mansions - the Seiberling. Visit the mansion and bask in the Victorian elegance while you discover the remarkable history of Howard County.
