The Liebler-Rohl Gasoline Station is significant as the Village of Lancaster's sole example of historic 20th century roadside commercial architecture. It is also significant as a locally rare and highly distinctive example of the Tudor Revival style of architecture.
Typically, gas stations were erected on prominent corner lots, often replacing homes in residential sections. This building was built by leading Western New York builder John D. Rademacher in 1935. The business was operated by Lieblers and later by the Rohls. It retained its original use in the 1960s. It was later adapted as a gift shop and now serves as a seasonal ice cream shop.
