2020:
This former Texaco station was built in 1929 in a Spanish Mission style building with vigas projecting from below the roofline. In the mid-1950s, porcelain panels were installed on the building during conversion to Texaco's Teague design. The station was known as Elmer's Texaco from 1953 until it closed in 1978. The building was vacant from at least 2007 until 2014 when it was restored for The Pump Bar. The owner bought a Texaco sign from Memphis. The vintage pole is used to support a modern sign for The Pump. The Texaco sign is displayed inside the bar. [map]
