former Conoco station
Fayetteville, AR

2012:

2019:
This Conoco station was built in 1936. The building has housed Dickson Street Liquor since 1964. The station would have looked like this one in Wichita, KS when it was built. [map]

former Conoco station
Hot Springs, AR
This former Conoco station was built around 1938. It is known as the Langdon Filling Station. It was still in use as a gas station into the 1990s. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It appeared to be vacant in 2019. [map]

former Sinclair station
Little Rock, AR
2010: 2019:
This former Sinclair station must have had a canopy originally. The awnings were not original. The building appeared to be vacant in 2010. In 2015, the building was restored. By 2016, it was housing the Solo Salon hair salon. Since 2019, the building has housed Love Spell Tattoo. [map]

former station
Eureka Springs, AR
This former station housed J'Petto & Co., a puppet store, when these photos were taken in 2010. The building appeared to be vacant in 2016. It was still vacant in 2018. My guess, based on the shape of this building, is that it was originally a Skelly station. If so, the upper windows were most likely diamond shaped. This building is faced with giraffe stone, so-called because of the patterning. [map]

former station
Desha, AR
2010: 2019:
This former station is faced with local stone. The building was housing a barber shop in 2010. Since around 2016, the building has housed Ray's CB Shop. [map]

former station
New Blaine, AR
This former station is known as the Troy Lasater Service Station. It was built in 1935 by Freeborn and Troy Lasater and operated as a single-pump station. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. [map]

former gas station
Eureka Springs, AR
This former gas station was built in the 1930s. It now houses the Texaco Bungalow, a cottage rental unit. I don't know if it was originally a Texaco, became one later on, or if this was just a decorating choice at some point. For more, see this website. [map]

former station
Fort Smith, AR
This former station has housed the Fort Smith Coffee Co. since 2017. It was supposedly built in 1928 as a Deep Rock Oil station. [map]

Roundtop Filling Station
Sherwood, AR

2008:

2019:
The Roundtop Filling Station was built in 1936 by a local developer for the Pierce Oil Company. This station also operated as a DX Oil Company station for awhile. The station stopped selling gas around 1958. The building, now owned by the city of Sherwood, was restored in 2015. It now houses the Southside Police Substation. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. I don't know the significance of the replica Pontiac weathervane. In the 1990s, a birdhouse had been installed in that spot. For more, see this website. [map]
