Restored Standard Oil Gas Station

Saves: 19
Check-ins: 13
It's perfectly restored with an old pump and a vintage sign. If you examine the pump carefully, you can see why we call such a contraption a "pump" - even today. Customers would pump the lever by moving it back and forth until the clear receptacle at the top had the amount needed. After the gasoline was pumped it could then be poured into the gas tank. The little shop which is now a visitor's center is open seasonally; it's best to call 815-998-2133 before heading out.
