McMinnville, TN
This former Pure Oil station was built in 1932 and was known as the Spring Street Service Station. It closed in the late 1980s and became home to a taxi business. The building then remained vacant for many years. It was restored and began housing an art studio known as Pure Art until 2005. These photos are from 2003. In 2020, the building began housing Pure Wealth Partners. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The large canopy was more commonly used by Pure Oil in the South to provide shade for customers. [map]
