former station
Roanoke, AL
This former station was built in 1922. The building originally had a lighthouse on top and the decoration below was meant to represent rocks. Sometime after the lighthouse was removed, an eye was painted on the building since the archway somewhat resembles an elephant's trunk. Some people refer to this as the Snow Elephant Building. It operated as an Exxon station from 1950-1989. Later, it operated as a produce stand. It had been vacant since at least 2007. In 2022, reproduction pumps were added and the building was repainted. It now houses the drive-thru White Elephant Coffee Shop. [first photo thanks Tim Ross] [map]
