former Gulf station [gone]
Willow Island, WV
This former Gulf station later served as a bus station and post office. The building had been abandoned for many years. I'm told that it was demolished in 2015.

Grantsville, WV
This former Gulf station now houses a NAPA Auto Parts store. [map]

former station
Oak Hill, WV
This former station housed Wobo Motor Sales & Repairs when this photo was taken in 2012. By 2014, the building was housing Little Hawk's Motorcycle Service. It was probably built in the 1920s or 1930s. The service bay builing to the right of the tiled roof building were most likely added later. [map]

former station
Harrisville, WV
This former station was vacant when these photos were taken in 2012. The blue zigzag border on the sign is suggestive of Pure Oil but I don't know if that brand was ever sold here. [map]

Huntington, WV
former station
Hundred, WV
This former station in Huntington now houses Jeff's Bike Shop. It was probably built in the 1920s. [map]

This former station in Hundred houses Hair Designs. It is probably from the 1920s or 1930s. [map]

Westbrook's Esso
Kingwood, WV
Westbrook's Esso was built in 1927 and was previously known as the Englehart and Loar Esso station. It was also a Standard Oil station at one time. The station closed in 1979. Around 1999, Tom Westbrook restored it and added his collection of gas-related memorabilia. [map]
