Long Description:
The Dolls House size Phillips Gas Station, has been restored to look as it used to look but does not sell gas, its just an empty shell. In 1928 it became the first Phillips 66 Retail Outlet in Texas.

"This vintage 1928 gas service station, designed in “Cottage Fashion” and often called a “Doll House” was started in 1927 after Congress authorized a coast-to-coast highway called Route 66. Finished in 1928, the station operated under different owners and brands of products until the Interstate system came into being.

Company records show this station was the first Phillips Petroleum Company retail outlet built outside Oklahoma at the time. Renovated in 1992 by local citizens under the auspices of the Old Route 66 Association of Texas, this now famous Route 66 Icon is the most photographed property all along Route 66. The site is owned and maintained by the Texas Route 66 Association." Text source: (visit link)
