George Preston's Filling Station
Belle Plaine, IA
George Preston's Filling Station was built in 1917. The building was moved here in 1921. It was a Standard Oil station originally and later became a Phillips 66. The station closed in 1989. The gas station memorabilia make this a popular stop on the Lincoln Highway. Preston began collecting the signs and other items when he started working at the station at the age of thirteen. He passed away in 1993 and his family maintains the building now. [map]

Cedar Rapids, IA
These former stations are next door to each other and are competing hair salons.

The station on the left now houses the Bladez Hair Studio. This photo is from 2006. The building was painted orange and red by 2012. [map]

The station on the right now houses Hair Dooz By Tangles. [map]

former Phillips 66 station
Creston, IA
This former Phillips 66 station was built in 1931 and was one of the first Phillips stations in IA. In 1994, the station was restored and painted in the original colors of green and orange. The building was moved about a mile from its original site. It is now used as the Union County Visitor's Information Center. Frank Phillips, the co-founder of the Phillips Petroleum Corporation, began his business career in Creston as a barber. [map]

Davenport, IA
This former Phillips 66 station now houses LAE Auto Sales. [map]

former Phillips 66 station
Davenport, IA
This former Phillips 66 station housed a Wow Burger in the 1960s and 1970s. The building was completely restored before Crescent Cleaners moved into the building in 2009. These photos are from 2010. The cleaners closed in 2012 and, later that year, a Redband Coffee Company opened in the building. [map]

former Phillips 66 station
Cedar Rapids, IA
This former Phillips 66 station now houses Dlouhy's Auto Repair. This station probably started out with just the cottage building on the left. The bay on the far right might have been built at the same time or later. The mismatched roof shingles and brickwork between the two buildings does not appear to be original. [map]

former Phillips 66 station
Marengo, IA
This former Phillips 66 station had been used for storage for years before these photos were taken in 2010. The bay building to the right is obviously a later addition. By 2015, the bay building and the gas station roof were covered with white siding material. [map]

former Phillips 66 station [gone]
Boone, IA
This building appeared to be a former Phillips 66 station. The building had been vacant for many years. One of the walls was damaged in 2014 during a storm. The building was demolished in 2015.

former Phillips 66 station
Lowden, IA
former station
Waverly, IA
This former Phillips 66 station in Lowden was built around 1925. It is also known as the Kreinbring Phillips 66 station. The building appeared to be vacant in 2009 when this photo was taken. It was still vacant in 2013. [map]

This former station in Waverly looks like a former Phillips 66 station. It was home to Millie Mae's gift shop. The building appears to be vacant now. [2006 photo thanks Glenda Campbell] [map]

Johnny's
Sanborn, IA
Johnny's is supposedly a "reborn Phillips 66" from 1932. I believe that this station is a simulation rather than a restoration. The chimney, roof tiles, siding, etc. all appear to be new. Even the "P" on the chimney is slightly different from the original Gothic style letter. [map]

Hastie Station
Carlisle, IA
The Hastie Station was supposedly built in 1933 by Ross Hastie as a Standard Oil station. It looks suspiciously like a Phillips 66 station but vintage photos show the station with Standard Oil pumps and signs. The station closed in 1943 and has remained vacant since then. The building is slowly being restored. These photos are from 2012. The A&W and other signs as well as the pumps were added as decorative items. For more, see this website. [map]
