former Magnolia station
Fayetteville, AR
2012: 2019:
This former Magnolia station was built in 1925. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was vacant when this photo was taken. The building was still vacant in 2014. In 2015, Sustainable Urban Mobility (SUMO), a car-sharing service moved into the building. A modified shipping container was placed under the canopy to be used as office space. That business closed in 2016 and the shipping container was removed. In 2018, a food truck for CatHead Biscuits was installed in front of the building. Around 2019, the building was repainted and a food truck for Bee's Style: Egg Rolls & Fried Rice was parked there. [map]

Brinkley, AR
This former station is from the 1920s or 1930s. The building had been used as an insurance office in recent years. The building appeared to be vacant when this photo was taken in 2008. It was still vacant in 2013. [map]

former Marathon Oil Service Station [gone]
Fordyce, AR
This former Marathon Oil station hadn't sold gas since the late 1970s or early 1980s but it still functions as a garage. It was built around 1928 and was also known as the Lion Oil Service Station. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The canopy structure very much resembled a late 1920s Richfield station. It was removed sometime after 2014. However, the rest of the building still stands.

former Magnolia station
Little Rock, AR
This former Magnolia station was built in the 1920s. It operated as a gas station until the 1980s. The building was then used for storage by the florist across the street. It was restored in 1997 and is now used as a National Park Service Visitors Center. For more, see this website. [map]

former station
Texarkana, AR
This former station was in use as a car wash and detail shop when these photos were taken in 2010. The building appeared to be vacant in 2016. By 2019, it was housing The Art Station. The building to the left was added in the 1950s. I believe this was a Mobil station originally. [map]

former station [gone]
Swifton, AR
This former station was a Phillips 66 station at one time. It was also known as the Southland Oil Company. The station was built around 1925. Although the building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it was demolished by 2013. Only the two canopy supports and three gas pumps remained at that point.
