former station
Throckmorton, TX
This former station is also faced with stone. The pattern used on the office is known as "giraffe stone." It was probably built in the 1930s. The building has been vacant for many years. [map]

Kiser's 66 Super Service Station
Alanreed, TX
Kiser's 66 Super Service Station was built by Bradley Kiser in 1932. It has been restored but is not in use. There are Texaco pumps and signs on display but I don't know if that was the brand sold here originally. I have seen vintage Conoco stations with very similar canopies and supports. The building is maintained by the Texas Historic Route 66 Association. [map]

former station
McLean, TX
This former station has the same style support column as Kiser's 66 described above. This building was constructed in 1926 as a showroom and garage. It became a Panhandle gas station in the 1940s. The canopy was originally covered with Spanish tile made of tin. The building's yellow brick was covered with stucco by the 1990s to give it a more Spanish look. This building was vacant when this photo was taken in 2011. It still appears to be vacant in 2021. [map]

former station
Quitaque, TX
This former station houses Karol's Kountry Korner. It has been decorated with Mobil signs and old pumps. I don't know if it was originally (or ever) a Magnolia or Mobilgas station. [map]

former Texaco station
Luling, TX
This former Texaco station was housing a closed laundromat in 2008. The canopy had been walled up. Around 2016, the walls were removed and restoration began. In 2018, the building began housing Uncle Wiggly's Wieners. [map]

San Antonio, TX
2011: 2019:
This former Texaco station was vacant when this photo was taken in 2011. The building would have had a canopy originally. By 2014, the building was housing Koolaches. By 2019, the building had been painted but it was vacant again. The parking lot was being used by the meat market across the street. In 2020, the building began housing Con Huevos Tacos. [map]

This former Texaco station was built in 1940. It has housed the GM Tire Shop since at least 2007. [map]

Houston, TX
This former station was built in 1934. It was probably a Texaco originally. It now houses Cullen & Polk Auto Service. [map]

former station
Coleman, TX
This former station has been dressed up as a Sinclair station. However, it was probably a Texaco originally. The big, silly stars might be a reference to Texaco but that might just be an accident. [map]
