Oil derrick Petunia Number One sits on the south grounds of the Oklahoma State Capitol. The well, which is officially known as Capitol Site Number One, was nicknamed Petunia because it was drilled in a flower bed, according to the Oklahoma History Center. The well was drilled in 1941. Oklahoma is the only state with an oil well drilled under its state Capitol.
