Titusville Renaissance, Inc. is a volunteer non-profit Community Revitalization organization committed to the enhancement of the greater Titusville area through programs such as the Titusville Open Air Market, Titusville Area Trails Association and Titusville Placemaking Program.
Titusville is rich in historic treasures, from the preserved home of journalism pioneer Ida Tarbell to the revolutionary Drake Well. You're bound to leave this town with a stimulated mind and satisfied heart. This quintessential small town has a big claim to fame, and you can uncover it all. Back in 1859, the Drake Well struck oil, marking Pennsylvania as the birthplace of the petroleum industry that is still impacting and evolving our modern world in infinite ways. The Drake Well Museum and Park features an outdoor exhibit with five different themes that allow you to immerse yourself in the history of the industry. Inside, visit "There's a Drop of Oil and Gas In Your Life Every Day!" where you can follow the journey of petroleum and learn how it impacts products and service we need and use in our daily lives.
If you want to expand your history lesson, hop on a tour at the Oil Creek & Titusville Railroad and even stay the night at the Caboose Motel! If you prefer self-guided adventures, the local Chamber of Commerce even offers brochures for walking tours so you can explore on your own time. Unwind from your history lesson at one of Titusville's fantastic local breweries like The Blue Canoe Brewery or Orr's Brewing Company.
