Carter & Lawson Phillips 66

311 E. Elm St., Lebanon, MO

East < GO > West

O.E. Carter & Ed Lawson opened a Phillips 66 gas station here in 1935. They also sold Barnsdall Products here. They owned and operated the station until 1950 when they moved their business to Phillipsburg. This was one of three stations that they owned over the years. Probably the most notable thing about the heavily remodeled building is the color of the roof, at least in this 2016 photo. The service bay with the shed style roof on the right in this photo is a later addition. The building is located on Elm St. (Route 66) & Washington Ave.

Under other ownership this was still a gas station until 1971 when the Elmore family moved their Orchard Hills Package Store into the building. Their original 1946 location had also been on Route 66. The Elmore family still runs the business.

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.
