Restored 1940s Gas Station

The restored 1940s gas station has all the old pumps, an old 15-bottle Coca Cola machine, and lots of vintage signs.

Restored 1940s Gas Station

This restored 1940s gas station used to be a Magnolia station. There were more signs on the street, a "gas station row," but apparently this is the only one left. The man who was there said he had just rented it, and is starting to sell/buy old signs, and is currently putting in an ice cream shop in the front. He was very friendly, and let us peek around inside. There are lots of great photo ops here!

Located on I-35 in the town of Jarrell you will drive past an entire row of vintage gas stations/signs that span several blocks. They are on the southbound side of I-35.

The signs are part of the old Magnolia Gas Station, very recently restored, which dates to the 1940s.
