The National Refinery
at Marietta, Ohio.
This refinery was acquired in 1906 and closed in 1939 in a new modernization plan.
Below are 4 photos from the Marietta refinery. They are from the collection of R. Bergen, son of the superintendent of the National Refinery when it was in operation. The scans were made by Rick Brown and kindly submitted to me for use here. Thanks go to both Mr. Bergen and Mr. Brown for sharing these with us.
