Berta's Garage
Seneca, IL
Berta's Garage was built in 1934. It was a Mobilgas station in 1945 but I don't know what brand was sold here originally. It may have been a Phillips 66 station at one time. Does anyone know more about this place? [map]

Blue Island, IL
This former station now houses Mufflers 4 Less. The slate roof appears to be original. The doorways probably had rustic stonework around them originally. The bay building was obviously added later. This may have been built as a Conoco station. [map]

Bill Shea's Gas Station Museum [gone]
Springfield, IL
Bill Shea's Gas Station Museum included a former Marathon station and a former Mahan station which is one of the oldest stations in Illinois. There were also old signs, pumps, Route 66 artifacts, etc. Bill Shea died in 2013. In 2015, the contents of the museum were auctioned off. In 2016, the Mahan station was moved to Fulgenzi's Pizza & Pasta in town where it will be restored. I assume the Marathon station was demolished or will be.
