Decatur, TX
The Petrified Wood Station was built in 1927. In 1929, the Texas Lunchroom was built next door. Cabins with garages were added in the 1930s and the place came to be known as the Texas Tourist Camp. In 1935, the gas station was covered with petrified wood and the Lunchroom was renamed the Texas Cafe. The Cafe closed in the 1960s. It reopened in 1993 and is now known as the Whistle Stop Cafe. The gas station and cabins closed in 1988 and are now used as office space. The buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For more, see this website. [map]
