America's Oldest Gas Station. America's Oldest Gas Station

America's oldest gas station, since 1909. Still in operation with full service.

[Gary, 10/28/2012]

Reighard's used to have a cool neon sign that proclaimed it "America's Oldest Gas Station," but that appears to have been replaced by a simple billboard proclaiming the same thing. There's also an "America's Oldest Gas Station" display sign on the outside wall of the station building. But it doesn't look as old as some other old gas stations, so architecture fans may be disappointed. August 2014: Photo added.
