former station
Reno, NV
This former station was built around 1914. It was restored in 2001 by David Rocovits. The sign identifies it as the Borgward Garage, a reference to Rocovits' passion for Borgwald automobiles. One source refers to this building as the "West 2nd Street Filling Station" which makes me wonder if this structure was relocated. However, I'm told that this station has been here at 1st and Winter Streets since at least 1972. The pumps are replicas. Although the globes on top of the pumps advertise for Chevron and Mobil, I don't know if this station ever sold either of those brands. [map]

This former Shell station was vacant when this photo was taken in 2014. It previously housed Goddard's Auto Sales. [map]

former Terrible Herbst Station
Las Vegas, NV
former Signal station
Las Vegas, NV
This Terrible Herbst location was built in 1979. This photo is from 2006. By 2014, it had become an Texaco station. There is another Terrible Herbst station in Kingman, AZ with a similar design. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

This former Signal station was built in 1946. It later housed a Husky station. The building now houses The Ladies of the Cross. [map]

former station
Las Vegas, NV
This former station was built in 1931. In recent years, the building was in use as a used car lot office. I believe that the building has been vacant since at least 2008. For more, see this website. [map]

former station
Sparks, NV
The green paint might indicate that this former station was a Sinclair station at one time. I don't know what brand was sold here originally. The pumps had been removed and the buildings were vacant when these photos were taken in 2014. In 2011, it housed a Golden Gate station. [map]

former Orbit station
Incline Village, NV
This former Orbit station has been abandoned and endangered for many years. The pump islands are long gone but there are still some decals on the doors indicating that this was a Texaco station before it closed. There are other Orbit stations still operating in California. [map]
