former station
Muskego, WI
This former station was built in the early 1920s as a simple rectangular-shaped building. It operated as a Wadhams station and later as a Standard station. In 1946, the station was expanded and remodeled to its current look. The building now houses Durham Hill Auto Sales & Service. [map]

former station
Superior, WI
This former station was known as the M&C gas station. It was moved and is now used as a welcome center at the University of Wisconsin. [map]

former Skelly station
Superior, WI
This former Skelly station was built in the 1930s. In the 1980s, it became a Getty station. The diamond-shaped sign would have looked like this one. [map]

former station
Spring Green, WI
This former station was built in 1926. The bay building was added in 1930. The station sold locally produced Johnson Oil. The station closed in 1946 and has not sold gas since then. When these photos were taken in 2012, the building housed the Opal Man, a jewelry store and opal cutting business. The building was for sale in 2013. I don't know when the Pure Oil pump was put on display. I don't believe Pure Oil was ever sold here. Despite the diamond-shaped window over the door, I don't believe Skelly was ever sold here either.

former station
Genoa, WI
former station
Westby, WI
This former station in Genoa now houses the Jambois Garage. The building appears much older than the Skelly sign. [map]

This former station in Westby now houses Black Jack Auto Sales. The roof flap over the door and flaring of the roof is similar to White Eagle stations. I don't know what brand was originally sold here. [map]

former station
Mineral Point, WI
This former station was built in 1925. The prefabricated building was manufactured by Milcor (the Milwaukee Corrugating Company). The station sold Cities Service gas until 1940. Gas was not sold here after that. The building now appears to be used as someone's private garage. [map]

former station
Darlington, WI
This former station was an Ioco station at some point. The building now houses a farm supply store. From the number of bays, I suspect this may have been a combination gas station and car dealership. For more, see this website. [map]

former station
Independence, WI

This former Texaco station was built in 1931. The service bay building was added later. The building now houses Nelson's Straightline Auto, a repair shop and used car dealer. [map]

Northwoods Petroleum Museum
Three Lakes, WI
The Northwoods Petroleum Museum houses the collection of Ed Jacobsen. It opened in 2006 and contains thousands of signs, globes and other gas station related items. For more, see this website. [map]
