What/Where Is This?

What kind of building is this? Does any one know where this building may have been located or if it still exists. The word "DRAKE" is written on the chimney. The photo is from the 1940's.

Thanks to Anonymous for identifying the structure as the Drake Well. The building still exists and is located in Titusville, Pennsylvania. Edwin Drake struck oil at this site in 1859. If you would like to learn more about the Drake Well and the beginnings of the oil industry, please click here.
