Mystery Photo 2: Abandoned Filling Station

Another interesting shot from John and Lenore Weiss is this distinctive but abandoned gas station located somewhere in the middle of the US – that’s all I’ll say to start since RoadDog guessed the last one pretty quickly! Know where it’s at? Please leave your guesses by clicking Comments below the picture.

    Definitely a cottage-style station. Judging from the land around it, perhaps western Nebraska, Great Plains area.

    Very good, Nebraska….

    Brian,

    I think I spotted this station in the Lincoln County inventory of historical buildings at Sutherland, NE, thanks to RoadDog’s insight.

    Good job!! Yes, you can find it on page 88 (pdf file page 92) at http://www.nebraskahistory.org/histpres/reports/lincoln_county.pdf

    It’s good reading. The report is from 1993 so more was still out there, and in better shape.

    Jackson Hole, Wyoming

    Nope sorry, has to be directly on the Lincoln Highway. Someone did guess correctly – see notes above, but thanks for trying.

    Its in the west end of Sutherland NE. I had it leased approx.
    1950 when I lived there.
