Mileage station
Winona, MN
This Mileage station was still serving gas when this photo was taken in 2012. By 2015, the pumps had been removed. It is still operating as a repair shop. I don't know what brand was sold here originally or when this station was built. [map]

former station
Janesville, MN
This former station housed Al's Shop when these photos were taken in 2012. By 2014, the building was housing King Construction. It appears the bay building on the left and possibly the section on the right were later additions. The building now houses Arnoldt's Laundry Station. [map]

Frank Lloyd Wright Station
Cloquet, MN
The Frank Lloyd Wright Station was built in 1957. The station was originally known as the Lindholm Oil station and sold Phillips 66 gas. The rocket shaped sign on the roof originally read "Phillips 66". Around 2007, it became Spur station. The Spur sign has been replaced with one for Best Service gas. F.L. Wright's original plans were for overhead gas pumps but local fire codes prevented that. This is the only gas station that was designed by Wright. The building features a cantilevered copper canopy and service bays with skylights. The second floor observation lounge was designed as a waiting area for customers. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]

former station?
Vergas, MN
I don't know if this building is a relocated former station or a replica. The building and sign collection are located on private property. [map]
