Long Description:
A sign in the window of this tiny service station calls it “Johnny’s, a Reborn 1932 Phillips 66 English Cottage Filling Station.” The roof, siding and chimney have been replaced, and the inside is filled with gas station mementoes, everything from an old Coke machine, cast iron heating stove, and even a checkerboard table with a couple of stools for those slow times when customers are scarce.

The gas station is facing the main street in front of the Vander Haag Museum. The family truck and auto salvage business started in 1939 when John C. Vander Haag, Sr. started the “South Side Junkyard. The second generation of Vander Haags took over in 1955, and five years later John Jr. expanded the business to include truck parts and repair. The 50,000 square foot Vander Haag Museum in Sanborn is filled with old time filling station memorabilia, restored trucks and cars.

The Vander Haag Museum is located at the junction of U.S. 18 and U.S. 59 in Sanborn, Iowa. It is open to visitors by appointment by calling 712-729-3606.
