I would love to move in and bring it back to live. Has a real nice front porch :))Have a great Monday!【ツ】Knipsa
This is what I think of as an old fashion southern gas station/store. Tom The Backroads Traveller
It does have a comfortable homey feel. I miss the good ol' days.
There are similar old gas stations around here.. I have seen some redone and made into cute coffee to go shops.. Have a happy day!
Somebody will buy it someday and it will come back to life. But until then, it's an interesting old place, Tex. :-)
It has the feel of a previous era, a time gone by. Lovely shots!
That is a neat old building - would love to see someone remodel it.
I see places like this and think, what a cool place for a coffee shop.
Those were the days. Or were they?
A nice old building. It would probably take a lot of remodeling, though. Great pictures.
Great captures of the building... I don't know why...but I love the looks of the old buildings!!
It certainly has the look of an old station, but it would need a lot of work.
It's sad that there are so many of these in the rural areas of our state.
Makes you wonder what happened to the owners. It's sad to see something that was together, falling apart.
I would imagine it's the land that would hold the value of that property, but I can see the beauty in that building ... so much rustic goodness ...
It makes me want to adopt the place and restore it!
Eileen's comment about making these places into coffee shops, what a neat idea. In actual fact there is an old gas station near us that is a general store with an Iris pub in the back. Thanks for joining in my guessing game. I have the answer up now. Have a great week :)
May I have five dollars worth of ethyl, please? Hello? Um...Boy, the service here is terrible!
How sad to see it falling apart!
There was an old building like that for many, many years that was my "guide" to turn going over home to W. FL. :)
Hi, there...you do have to wonder why they don't take it down. There may be some issue with the EPA for the gas barrels under the ground. The demolition might be very expensive!
I don't know why but I love coming across an old place like this. puts me n touch with my youth. Many don't know it but as a small child I walked to a station similar to this to buy kerosene for our latern. long story. maybe I'll write a book someday....Janey
I bet that little place was a fun place to gather years ago and it probably had regular customers and some strangers stoping for a tank of gas and a package of cigarette and chewing gum, a pop or a bag of chip. I can picture the old gas pump.It looks like it's had better days.Hugs,JB
I bet at one time it had a liar's bench outside...I bet at one time a lot of life passed through those doors.
met recht oude glorie.
Dearest Theresa; Oh, it doesn't look like used to be the gas station. Kind of sad without having owner foe such a long time.As senior citizens population growing, we see many empty houses in Japan. And one of the political issues; whew I need to deal with it for my empty house p:-) Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*
Sad old place.Have a marvellous Monday.Best wishes Molly
Deserves to find a buyer and a good renovation!
It has its own special charm.
It could be turned into something nice I think. Too bad it is so far away. :)
Love the signs of time that have wasted the surroundings.MersadMersad Donko Photography
A fine example of nature reclaiming an old building over time. Many old filling stations were victims of freeway expansion that left towns with much less traffic.
The vines on the ceiling are especially interesting.
Love those old buildings!
It looks very old and rusty, but very nice! :)
That is a neat old building,Tex!Great captures!Have a lovely week!Dimi...
long gone indeedit is always interesting to see buildings that nature is taking back
Old buildings like this always stir old memories!
A neat old rustic building!
What a classic place ... interesting and neat photos!
This is a pretty rundown gas station.Have a great week.Best regards, Irma
Memories of a different time.
What a great old building! I hope someone buys it and fixes it up and turns it into a business...maybe selling antiques! :-)
I just love finding places like this during our travels. So, four aunts who were nuns? Did you miss your calling? :)
This reminds me of the old country store down the road from where my aunt and uncle lived in the country in east Texas. Wasn't a gas station though. Probably won't get a buyer looking like that.
Pretty old structure! Still standing hopefully to renovate and reuse.
Dreams turned to dust. Lots of those around here, too.
Morning, really love seeing the wonderful old buildings, but also sad. Francine.
I'll bet it's been closed more than 15 or 20 years. I love this post. I remember these type Store Stations. Some have reopened as other types where the store part is an office or a place where customers would pay for feed & seed or plants and landscaping. and a whole list of other stuff.
Memories of gasoline being a quarter a gallon and you got someone to fill your tank.
Why is it that we're so drawn to those old buildings. Great pics!
Perfectly abandoned. My fav type of place.
These are rather sad situations. Here , most such properties the buildings are bulldozed. It cuts down on the vandalism.
The old house has a story to tell.Weathered, but beautiful in its age.
Looks like a peaceful house. :)
Looks like so many other abandoned places we saw down South and when visiting my sis...sad...:)JP
oohhhh it's lovely rubbish!!
It is really interesting how nature starts to reclaim mans creations after time. Nice photo!
But it looks beautiful. I'm surprised that so far nobody even not bought homestead.
I always wonder what the memories are in old buildings...who built it, what joys were in it...everything!Linda http://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com/?s=The+Adventures+of+Fuzzy+and+Boomer&submit=Search http://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
it is a tired old building and i bet we would be shocked it it could tell us stories from the past. maybe it was a gas station/slash police lock up with all those bars.
Old buildings but full of charm.Greetings.
It's easy to see pictures like this and think about the people who lived or worked here, the hopes and dreams they must have had. And I can't help but be curious about where they might have gone, what happened to them.
Wow great picture
Looks like it has seen better days. There's an old gas station in a town near me that closed about 13 years ago. So far it's not in too bad of shape. The sheriff used to park in its parking lot at the edge of town to keep an eye out for speeders.
Great photos of an interesting old building. I am never sure if places like that are an "eye-sore" or a piece of history than needs to be looked after and restored!
I love finding old places like that. Great pictures.
And yet it still stands!
Love old gas stations like this one. I've seen some that have been fixed up also!
The going-to-rot look has a definite photographic appeal.
With a little, well in reality a huge amount of TLC, this could be a family home, think of the stories it would tell to the new owners.Lovely story photo series, as always.
it was nice building in the past
Still for sale after 20 year? I wonder if somebody will ever buy and take over finally.
I am sure some one around thee has a lot of things they can remember about this place. Quaint.
I could live in that, with rusts.
It has surely been a nice place once, but now it looks a little scary...I guess I have seen to many horror movies...:)
Interesting old place. Too bad someone couldn't re-do it and turn it into a shop of some sort.
Old wrecked places that were once going concerns are SAD, don't you think?
I love these abandoned objects. You can see nature is taking over. Very very nice !!
The vines are taking over.
I get special "feelings" when near these old places. There are still faint memories remaining when I see these.
Amazing how the vines grow and attach to anything:@)
It looks a little sad. When I was growing up, my grandparents ran a little grocery store in a tiny town in Georgia that looked something like this.
It's sad to see old buildings sometimes. It would be so great if someone could find a use for it. :)
This looks like it could be right down the road from me.
I would have loved to take pictures of this place, so many photo ops. Great post!
Talk about neglected! I doubt it would last another 20. I miss those kinds of gas stations.
Wow. It's in pretty bad shape. The vines look like they sucked the life right out of it. Lots of good material in it though. Poor old thing. blessings ~ tanna
Sad to see such a place in this condition. I am sure at one time it was a popular hang out for folks.
Evening Tex I bet it was somethin' in its hey day. Hug B
A lonely service station.
i wonder about it? i bet it was a real happening place. lots of gossip and chit chatting too. ( :
T, when I see a place like this I always think of the generations of people that were a part of this little building one way or another!
It has its own beauty with age but it’s apparent the need of total renovation or maybe reconstruction. I hope it would have a new owner and start the second life.Yoko
Love how you photographed the building, you made it seem warm and welcoming in it's own way, I guess what I am trying to say is it's beautiful.
Sure does look like an old filling station. In a town of higher population it could be turned into another kind pif shop. I like it.
It's fascinating watching how mother nature slowly takes back what was once open land.
It's design seems like it would have been a gas station. Interesting!
Dearest Theresa,When viewing such abandoned property my thought is always: 'Is there no relative left...?'Hugs,Mariette
It needs some love.
So suggestive, haunting, and a pool of great photos!ALOHA from HonoluluComfortSpiral <3
I bet it was a great place in it's day!
what a beauty it must have been in its day and its sad its day is done.
Very charming even in its dilapidated state. Nice find!
It's kind of neat to see mother nature reclaiming what was a human place. We pass an old gas station that looks like that when we drive to Moab. It makes me ponder the past and wonder why no one wants to rejuvenate the site for another business.
the place feels kinda sad to me
I love these old places.It has a cousin in our community:http://www.greensborodailyphoto.com/2013/05/old-jamestown.htmlJanisGreensboro, NC, USA
This place has got to be old... I don't think I've ever seen a gas station with a brick chimney before!
The vines probably make it look much better in the summer. ;)
Wonder how many stories it has to tell us! Great captures.
So sad to see these old places derelict and unloved. It was probably a bustling little business years ago. Now I guess the townsfolk go to the larger towns for discount fuel.
Makes my mind swirl with who, what, where, when, why stuff . . . great pictures to aid my wondering. The vine seemed to find its way with its own kind of wondering . . .
aw i hope someone purchases it and fixes the place up...i has so much potential to shine!
It looks pretty good for being unattended so long. I gotta remember that meme
Can you imagine at one time this building was in great shape with the hustle and bustle of work and people around. Great photos!
I love those vines!!!
The vines will probably eat it completely some year!
Amazing that someone is still trying to sell the old place. Looks like it would be best to bulldoze it down and start over. :) Nevertheless, a good remembrance of time gone by.Lindy
I totally like these kinds of places. It's always fun to just think about who and what life was like back in the days and then I often wonder, why? Why doesn't someone claim it still?
Long abandoned :((
It saddens me to see old places falling down.
It definitely looks like it need some TLC.
don't you just love finding old buildings that use to have life with people coming and going!! Hope someone buys it and opens something in it!!
Hmmm .... this can not cost much as I agree the state of the house view. However, a very nice photography object;-)
What a neat place. I love to photograph places like that.
It evokes thoughts of its past life/lives. Not an attractive place but it has its own kind of beauty.
