Mobil station
Kewaunee, WI
This Mobil station was built in 1931 for Salkowski Petroleum as a Wadhams station. There was an identical station in Chicago. There were originally three service bays. The building was modified to two bays later on to accommodate wider cars. This Tudor style station has sold Mobil gas for many years. There is a Mobilgas Pegasus weathervane sign on the roof. [map]

former station
Orfordville, WI
gas station
Platteville, WI
This former station has housed Kopp's Konfectionery Station since 2009. The DX sign is a modern addition. I don't know what brand was sold here originally. [map]

This gas station is still operating as B&B Service. This station was built around 1930. It may have been a Texaco station originally. [map]

former station
Algoma, WI
former Sinclair station
Pulaski, WI
This former station in Algoma appeared vacant when this photo was taken in 2011. It was still vacant in 2013. There were still Kerr-McGee gas pumps here in 2010. I don't know what brand was sold here originally. By 2015, there were Deep Rock pumps and a Deep Rock sign installed. [map]

This former Sinclair station was built in 1925. The poles supporting the canopy now were once brick and stucco. The station closed in 1989. The building now houses the Pulaski Chamber of Commerce. [map]

former station
Richfield, WI
This former station has a replica Texaco pump. I don't know what brand was originally sold here. The building did not appear to be in use when these 2011 photos were taken. [map]

former station
Hazel Green, WI
This former station was supposedly built in 1940. If so, I think the canopy must have been a later addition. The building now houses Symons Auto Center, a repair shop. It features gas station related items outside and inside. I don't know if this was ever a Texaco. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Hickory Corners Filling Station
Hickory Corners, WI
The Hickory Corners Filling Station was built in the 1920s by Fred Longard. The office was used as a store with groceries, hardware and other supplies. The station closed in the mid-1930s when Longard moved to a larger one across the street. The smaller station was used as a summer cottage after that. Robert Broetzman bought the building in 1980 and began decorating it with gas station items. There was a White Eagle statue here that was missing when this photo was taken in 2011. For more, see this website. [map]
