The old gas station is in the library. Small museum, worth taking a couple of minutes to walk through.

They are doing some remodeling but still open and functional. Fun and Educational. They could do with adding some music or something besides silence. Great gift shop next door - Kinderhook Treasures.

Old service station exhibit.

Inside the library... SOOOO cold. The right lighting on some of these artifacts would make this a really impactful attraction. As it is, it's rather sterile, like a hospital. Worth a stop though as you make your way up the Mother Road.
