former Skelly station
Lawrence, KS
former station
Wichita, KS
This former Skelly station is now occupied by the Gaslight Tavern & Coffee House. The diamond windows would have had painted glass Skelly signs that were lit from behind. For some Skelly stations in Missouri, see this page. [map]

This former station in Wichita was known as the Riverside Service Station in the late 1930s. I don't know what brand was sold here originally but this was a Golden Rule station in its later years. The building was used as a beauty shop for a number of years before becoming an ice cream shop. When these photos were taken in 2010, the building housed the Bierock Restaurant. By 2012, the building had been repainted and housed Squeezer's Palace. By 2015, the building had been painted green and was housing Chiquita's Corner. [map]

Junction City, KS
This former station now houses Reich's Foreign Car Service. Does anyone have any information about this building? [map]

former station
Norton, KS
former station
Atwood, KS
This former station in Norton appeared to be undergoing renovation when this photo was taken in 2010. By 2012, it was housing the Business & Visitors Center. [map]

This former station in Atwood has a Derby sign on the lot. However, I don't know if that was the brand sold here originally. This building is now occupied by the Grooming Station. [map]

former station
Kanorado, KS
This former station in Kanorado may have been a Gulf station originally. Faded signage indicates it was a Conoco in later years. These photos are from 2010. By 2012, the building's tower was removed. [map]

former station
Fort Scott, KS
This former station now houses the M&K Car Wash. It was probably built in the 1930s or so. This canopy is obviously a much later addition. These photos are from 2010. By 2015, the roof tiles had been replaced with flat tiles. [map]

Mason's Texaco station
Weir, KS
Although Mason's Texaco station is decorated with Texaco signs, I don't know if it was built originally as such. It may have been built as a White Eagle station. Does anyone know when this station was restored or more about it? [map]

former station
Salina, KS
This former station is described in a local visitors' guide as a 1935 Shell station. It appears to have been a White Eagle station originally. [map]

former station
McPherson, KS
This former station appears to have been built as a White Eagle station. The building now houses the Courtyard on Main restaurant. For more, see this website. [map]

former station
Emporia, KS
This former station appears to have some borrowed elements from the Pure Oil and/or Phillips 66 cottage station designs. These photos are from 2010. The building appeared to be vacant in 2015. [map]


former station
Wilson, KS
This former station is now used as Wilson's Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center. [map]

former Kanotex station
Galena, KS
This former Kanotex station was built in the 1920s. It had been abandoned for many years. In 2007, the station was restored to its 1940s appearance by four women from Galena. They named their business "Four Women on the Route" and used the gas station as a restaurant and Route 66 gift shop. These photos are from 2010. In 2013, the business was renamed "Cars on the Route" and the sign on the building was repainted. I don't know if the pumps are replicas but I'm sure that the globes are. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

former station
Leavenworth, KS
This former station was built in the 1930s. [map]
