Wyoming – Sinclair, Wyoming is a little town just off the interstate, home to about 400 people. Its most noticeable feature is its oil refinery - a sprawling facility of tall towers and glinting metal pipe that generates barrel after barrel of petroleum products each day. The refinery is Sinclair's reason for being. The town was founded as a company town in the 1920s. Recently, people with ties to Sinclair gathered. Some traveled from halfway across the country to meet old friends, and to remember what it was like to live in this community, decades ago. Wyoming Public Radio's Molly Messick has this story.
