This former station is known as Ernie's Station. It was built in 1917. The pumps and signs were added during a recent restoration.


Rayvic Company
Minneapolis, MN

2008:

2012:
The Rayvic Company sold Mobil gas in later years but I'm told it was a Texaco at one time. It opened in 1936 as a gas station and garage. In the late 1940s, the building tripled in size and became Rayvic. The owner retired and the station closed in 2008. Later that year, the building was adapted for office space for Clockwork Active Media Systems. [top two photos thanks William Zimmerman] [map]


former station
New Ulm, MN
This former station was built in 1938 as Shell station for the Retzlaff Motor Company, a Dodge dealer. It is now used by the Brown County Historical Society for storage and exhibit space. [map]
