Budville Trading Post
1 mile W of I-40 Exit 104 on Route 66, Budville, NM
About 1 mile west of I-40 Exit 104 you come to the Budville Trading Post.
It has been around since H. N. "Bud" Rice opened a gas station
and garage here in 1928. After Bud's passing in 1967 his wife Flossie
and her next two husbands operated the business until 1994. So the business
operated continuously for 66 years on Route 66. Somewhere along the line
the name changed to the Budville Trading Company, as seen on the building
in these photos. The business appears to be closed.

An old style visible gas pump stands out front at the Budville Trading
When we snapped this photo in 2013 the neon tubing spelling out Budville
still mostly there but not in very good shape.
