Charlie's Garage
Chester, MA
Charlie's Garage was originally a Ford-Lincoln showroom. Somewhere along the line, it became a gas station and repair shop. At some point, the building also housed Carm's Restaurant. The station was still pumping gas in 2004. However, the business was closed and the building for sale when these photos were taken in 2011. There is talk that the building might be used as a visitors center. Part of the building may also reopen as a restaurant. [map]

former station
Westfield, MA
This former station appeared to be vacant when this photo was taken in 2011. The building previously housed an appliance store. By 2014, the windows were boarded up. By 2015, the small station in the middle had been covered up with siding. Other exterior details from the larger building were gone. [map]

Perley Burrill Fuel Oil station [gone]
Lynnfield, MA
This Perley Burrill Fuel Oil station claimed to be "America's oldest filling station". I assume they meant the oldest station still in operation but I don't know if this claim was true. I believe this station was built around 1939. These photos are from 2011. By 2013, the station was closed. The building was demolished in 2017.

former station
Pittsfield, MA
This former station originally sold fuel and range oil. The owners added a gas pump in the 1920s. In the 1950s and 1960s, the station was known as Frank Gogan's Mobil. Sometime after that, it became a CITGO. At some point between 2002 and 2004 when the first two photos were taken, it had become a Shell station. By 2011 when the third photo was taken, the building was vacant and the pumps had been removed. The building was still vacant in 2019. [map]

Tony's Gasoline
Dorchester, MA
Tony's Gasoline was also known as Tony's Auto & Cycle Center when these photos were taken in 2010. The building has apparently been remodeled a number of times. A worker there said the station had originally been a blacksmith's shop. By 2014, the building was housing US Auto Care and gas was still being sold. By 2019, the pumps were gone and the lot was surrounded with chain link fencing. The building is still there. [map]
