About this title


The world has changed. Two hundred years ago most people lived in small rural communities. They walked or rode a horse when they traveled. Water wheels were their only source of power. Communication was restricted to the spoken and printed word.But everything changed. The change started slowly in the forests of western New York. Visionaries used the technology of the 1800's to manufacture potash from ashes, used the technology of the 1820's to collect and market natural gas, and used the technology of the 1840's to make kerosene from petroleum. Advances in engineering made it possible to dig canals and build railroads to get these products to market. These canals and railroads accelerated the pace of change. Merchants then learned to protect their interests by influencing public policy and funding decisions being made in the state legislatures and in the United States Congress.This resulting combination of technology, engineering, and public policy impacted the lives of those who lived in Chautauqua County many years ago, and it still impacts our lives today.
