Vintage Sun Oil Gas Station

In the birthplace of the American oil industry, there's a replica Sun Oil Company gas station of the 1920s, including a vintage wrecker truck.

[Michael Green, 04/19/2023]

The gas station, in ruins, originally stood about 40 miles away in Oil City. The roof was hauled to Titusville in 2017, and the rest of the station was built new around it.
