former Texaco station
Lodgepole, NE

2006:

2022:
Although not "icebox" stations with porcelain enamel panels, this station and the one below still bear Texaco stars and stripes. There may have been porcelain panels originally on one or both of these buildings.

This former Texaco station in Lodgepole looks like it is used for storage. The remaining Texaco letters have been removed from and the three stars on the front of the building have been moved to one side. [map]

This former Texaco station in Sutherland also appeared vacant when this photo was taken in 2012. There was probably another building, now gone, which accompanied this service bay building. [map]

former station
Columbus, NE
former station
Beatrice, NE
These former stations were probably built as Champlin stations. There are many other examples of this folded plate canopy design in Oklahoma. By 2018, this canopy in Aurora was gone. By 2021, the building was gone as well. The Columbus canopy remains but the building has been remodeled. The The Beatrice building appears to be the original. It now houses Beatrice Auto Sales.

former station
Holdrege, NE
This former station has Conoco memorabilia inside the office. However, I believe the building is not in use otherwise. I don't know if this station was ever used as a Conoco or if it was just dressed up as one. [map]
