Magnolia Petroleum Building
Dallas, TX
The Magnolia Petroleum Building was built in 1920. The flatiron-shaped building had offices above and sold gas under the canopy. The building is also referred to as the Triangle Point Building and the KLIF Building. KLIF, a Dallas radio station, used the building for its studios from 1964-1980. In 2019, the building was renovated with all but the front arches walled up with windows, creating interior space. A staircase was also installed under the front of the building. [map]

Grimes Garage
Hillsboro, TX


This Grimes Garage was built in 1906. The building originally had two large windows at the sides of a central entrance. A car and tires were displayed in the windows. At some point the entrance doors and the window on the left were removed to create this canopy for servicing cars and selling gas. By the 1940s, the garage was serving as a Texaco station with 14 pumps. The garage closed in 1965. The building housed Classic Auto Memories for many years. Sometime after 2016, that business was gone. In 2018, the building was repainted. The building now houses the Texas Through Time fossil museum. For more, see this website. [map]
