former gas station
Hopkinsville, KY
This former station has been vacant for many years. It has been used as a donut shop, a vacuum cleaner repair shop, and a junk shop. The building may have been moved here from a different location. The bay at the right might have been a later addition. For more, see this website. [map]

former gas station
Louisville, KY
This former station appears to share the same building design as the one described above in Hopkinsville. This building has housed the Cherokee Animal Hospital since 1980. The building is probably from the late 1920s. [map]

former Standard Oil station
Bowling Green, KY
This former Standard Oil station was built in 1921. It remained in operation until 1956. The building was then used as a used car lot and a gospel music store. It was restored in 2008. The pumps and sign are replicas. This building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For more, see this website. [map]

former Standard Oil station
Lawrenceburg, KY
This former Standard Oil station now houses Cody's Auto Techtronics. [map]

former station
Paducah, KY
This former station was built in 1917, most likely as a Standard Oil station. It shares the same building design as the stations above. Although there is a Texaco sign on the lot, it was installed in recent years and is probably a replica. I don't know if this was ever a Texaco station. The building was restored sometime after 2007 and is used as an information and tourist center. For more, see this website. [map]

former gas station
Louisville, KY
This former station has been vacant for many years. It features an enormous canopy. The office must have been the smaller separate building. Under the canopy, there are restrooms and other mysterious features - like whatever is under the tarp and the trough-like area to the right of it. [map]
