former Falcon station [gone]
Wexford, PA
This former Falcon station housed Bauerle's Greenhouse, a garden shop, when these photos were taken in 2007. The building was demolished around 2014. I believe this building design was used by Falcon in Pennsylvania and Minute Man in New York. Both brands were later consolidated and became Kwik Fill stations.

This former Falcon station in Beaver Falls was vacant and obstructed with an ugly canopy when this photo was taken in 2007. It was still vacant in 2011. By 2016, the building was housing a used car dealership. [map]

This former Falcon station in Erie was vacant when this photo was taken in 2010. By 2015, the building was housing a used car dealership. [map]

former station
Titusville, PA
This former station in Titusville now houses City Limits Ice Cream. The pump island still remains. [map]

former Phillips 66 station [gone]
Industry, PA
This former Phillips 66 station had been vacant for at least three years when this photo was taken in 2012. In 2013, the canopy was removed. I believe the building itself was remodeled for another gas station. [map]

former Mobil station [gone]
Allentown, PA
former station
West Middlesex, PA
These Mobil station canopies were adapted for this LUKOIL station. This photo is from 2009. The station became an independent brand after that but the canopies remained until at least 2019. They were gone by 2021. There are only about 16 of these canopies left including these two. There are others in North Carolina (five), Texas (three), Florida (two), Ohio (one), and California (three). None of them are still used at Mobil stations. These canopies were designed by Eliot Noyes in the late 1960s. For more, see this example that was in Hamden, CT.

This former station in West Middlesex appears to have been built as a Gulf station. It housed Chubby's, an ice cream stand when this photo was taken in 2010. By 2014, the building was housing the Joe Beer liquor store. A gable has been added to the roof. [map]

former station
Meadville, PA
Sunoco station
Frackville, PA
The former station in Meadville now houses Bean's Auto Service. I'm not sure what brand was sold here originally. [map]

This Sunoco station is still selling gas and performing repairs. It might have been a Sinclair station originally judging from the green paint at the base of the building. The "Custom Service" letters were used by Sunoco. By 2018, the business was known as Miller's Station. The Sunoco panel on the front of the building has been covered up with a new sign for Miller's. The sign on the back of the building was removed. [map]

former Texaco station
Ashland, PA
former Union 76 station [gone]
Reading, PA
This former Texaco station is now used as a repair garage. [map]

This former Union 76 station housed Maier's bakery outlet when this photo was taken in 2003. By 2011, the building had been remodeled significantly and was housing Pizza Time. [map]

former station
Pittsburgh, PA
This former station was built in 1939. It now houses the Double Wide Grill. The exterior features a simulated Texaco star and some stripes but I don't know if it was ever a Texaco. For more, see this website. [map]

former Esso station
Mechanicsburg, PA
This Exxon station still bore the "Happy Motoring!" slogan from when it was an Esso station when these photos were taken in 2010. The metal numbers were still changed manually on the price sign. By 2016, the pumps were gone. By 2017, the Esso/Exxon signs and manual sign had been removed. The building now houses Clay's Service Center. [map]

former station [gone]
Mechanicsburg, PA
This former station bears the silhouette of a former Gulf Oil sign. I have never seen another building like this one. This was probably a Skat station originally. The building was vacant when these photos were taken in 2010. In 2012, the building was demolished.
