I was traveling back roads in Oklahoma on my way home from an assignment in Altus when I ran across an old rock gasoline station that caught my eye. The architecture of this building is similar to structures in Medicine Park, using the rounded stone and concrete mortar. I stopped to photograph this abandoned building and noticed the pipes leading to now empty gasoline storage tanks. A small water cistern sits nearby – for drinking or just water for the automobiles?
Across the street is a sign for the Hancock Ranch, listed as one of the Oklahoma Centennial farms. I drove down the road to the south and did not notice anything unusual. Across the street is a modern metal building for the “Sedan Volunteer Fire Department”.
