Restored 1930 Gas Station

Field review by the editors.

Rome, New York

The last surviving Howard P. Sears gas station, a Rome-area franchise that began in the 1920s. This station was built in 1930, and was restored by the son of Mr. Sears (Both no longer living). It still has its original, restored, vintage gas pumps, signage, oil changing pit, air pressure gauge, and other add-ons not normally found in most restored gas stations. There's also a museum inside the small white stucco and orange-tile-roofed office.
