Bolivar has a unique identity derived not only from its namesake, Simon Bolivar, but from the footprint left by the "oil boom". The discovery of oil in the 1880's hurtled the town from a population of a few hundred to thousands of people producing tens of thousands of barrels of oil each week. Engines could be heard day and night powering machines to pump the oil from the sands far below the surface. The engines now are rarely heard, but oil is still produced even though it's just a fraction of its once enormous volume.
Bolivar is a town in Allegany County, New York, USA.
Population:..... 2,223 at the 2000 census(source Wikipedia).
