A piece of history. Worth the drive from Winston Salem . Refer the pictures for the accurate location, so you don’t have to wander and figure out this landmark.

While the immediate neighborhood has changed, this iconic gas station has been well preserved and truly a one-of-a-kind attraction for the city. There is nothing to do other than drive by or take a picture, but if you are close by or visiting another attraction...More
