Restored 1930s Gas Station

I stopped at the restored Gulf station on a road trip to Kentucky earlier this year.

[Marvin Goins, 12/24/2013]

The Carson Rose Gulf service station first pumped gas in 1930 and closed in 1956. The town's 2001 restoration project repaired the structure and cleaned up decades of neglect. The station features authentic signage and cylindrical glass gas pumps.
