former station
Belva, WV
former Amoco station [gone]
Quinnimont, WV
This building appears to be a former station. It now houses the Beech Glen Market and Diner. [map]

This former Amoco station was a 76 station in its later years. It was vacant when this photo was taken in 2007. By 2012, the building was gone.

former station
Clay, WV
This former station now houses the Bickmore Tire Shop. The canopy station is probably from the 1920s or 1930s. The service bay building behind the canopy station was obviously added later. [map]

former station
Clay, WV
This former station has housed Connie's, a take-out restaurant, since around 2009. Before that, the building was used as the Clay County Welcome Center. It was probably built in the 1920s or 1930s. [map]

former Quaker State station
Parkersburg, WV
This former Quaker State station was built in 1928. It was also known as the Sterling Windmill Service station. Sometime after 1995, the building was adapted for the Windmill Restaurant & Co. Around 2008, it became the Pepper Mill. Since around 2011, the building has housed the CCMH Federal Credit Union. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. [map]

former station
Chester, WV
This former station resembles an Independent Oil station like this one in Baxter Springs, KS. However, I don't believe Independent Oil built stations in West Virginia. The building now houses Sofia Rae's Cafe. These photos are from 2012. By 2013, the building had been repainted. [map]

former station [gone]
White Sulphur Springs, WV
This Art Deco building appeared to be a former station. This photo is from 2012. By 2015, the building was gone.

former Gulf station
Rainelle, WV
This former Gulf station was built in 1937 and the postcard photo above is believed to be from then. Originally, part of the building housed a lunch room. There was also a bus station to the immediate right of the building which is gone now. The lot was heated with underground pipes which prevented snow from sticking. The building was for sale when these photos were taken in 2012. By 2014, the office was housing Hello Beautiful Hair & Beauty Lounge. For more, see this website. [map]
