Dunkirk has a rich history that was fired by the Gas Boom in the 1800's.
In 1887, the first natural gas well was opened in Dunkirk, and with this cheap and efficient fuel came the glass industry. Believing that the gas supply was too vast to become extinct, torches with ever-burning natural gas flames were set up and attracted thousands of people.
