Texaco Super Service Station

400 E. 2nd St., Winslow, AZ

East < GO > West

The first reference to a gas station at this address that I've found is in the July 1941 phonebook where the station is listed as Andy's Texaco Super Service Station with the slogan, "Let Andy Do It" In the August 1942 book it is listed as Van's Texaco Super Service Station. It was Bert Hawkin's Texaco in 1947. By 1966 it was Allen's Texaco. This station is directly across the road from LaPosada and the Highway Diner.

Looking at the building, I'm kind of thinking it originally had a flat roof that has been topped with the gable roof in the photo. The 2012 Route 66 In Arizona Historic Resource Survey lists dates for the building as "Post 1940" and 1958, so I'm guessing the gable roof was added in 1958.

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
