The Richmond Museum of History is opening an exhibit Tuesday about the history of the Chevron refinery in commemoration of facility's 110th anniversary.
The refinery on the Richmond shoreline, which predates the 1905 founding of Richmond, is located about 3.5 miles from El Cerrito's western border and has had a deep involvement not only with its host city of Richmond but also with other nearby communities, including El Cerrito.
