Was built in 1870’s then added on an addition and became a service station. Plan to restore back to the 1920’s station/blacksmith shop. I believe that it was a Sinclair station. Hope to have it done in a year or two. Beloit, Kansas

Cool project, I am glad you are saving it. Check old telephone directories/newspapers to see what it was originally built as and/or rebranded to.

Thank You for all your time and effort into preserving history. Looks like a photo opportunity for a community calendar, just add an old squad car or fire truck and a high school sports team and you have the making of a yearbook photo and a poster backdrop. As stated in prior posts, we will be watching those updates........
