This small “classical temple” gas station is con structed of red brick with projecting corner piers which are decorated with vertical inset panels of yellow brick. The large, central, projecting service bay has been brick¬ed in. Roland A. McGinnis, a plumber, purchased the property in 1928 and built the gas station the sameyear.
