World's First Batwing Gas Station

Built in 1954, restored in 2007. Looks as extreme and futuristic as the day it opened, although you can't buy gas there any more.

The Haysville Chamber of Commerce moved out and the Haysville Economic Development recently moved in! The building has been kept up nicely. Glad our family made the quick stop.

The Batwing Gas Station is just down the road from the highway. Not very interactive, but super fun to look at. The city still had Christmas decorations up nearby when I went.
