"Energy & Light in Nineteenth Century Western New York," a book by Douglas Houck, was recently released by the History Press of Charleston, South Carolina. The book tells the story of the people and events that occurred in Western New York that changed the world.

That started to change when William Austin Hart from Fredonia noticed bubbles of natural gas rising to the surface of Canadaway Creek.
