Jim Brown's Gas Station.

Jim Brown's Gas Station

This is a mock-up of an early gas station. It was built by retiree Jim Brown (not the football player). Inside the station is a museum of car maintenance items, and Coca Cola memorabilia. Pictures can be taken from the outside at any time. To see the numerous items inside, see Jim Brown, next door, in the house to the left of the "station." He spent the past 6 years, off and on, building this site. There is no fee.
