Tydol Oil Refinery

Tidewater was finest recognized for its Flying A-branded products and gas stations, and for oil and natural gas book Veedol motor oil, which oil and natural gas book was recognized throughout the world.

When the Tydol refinery closed, most of the homes were moved out or torn oil and natural gas book down. The Tydol neighborhood virtually disappeared with the exception of the college home.
All that continues to be of the refinery are a few buildings, foundations and heat exchanger mass production furnaces. All of the processing items have been eliminated.
