East < GO > West

The McDougal Filling Station was built about 1941 using native sandstone in the Ozark Giraffe pattern. The gasoline pumps were originally located between the station and the highway on the south side with a kerosene pump on the east side of the station. There never was a service garage here but the McDougals did operate a small store at the station. They lived in a long gone house behind the station.

The station started out as a Conoco gas but beginning in the early fifties it sold various brands of gas as time went on. The station closed in the late 1960s.

The station is located abount 3 miles east of Vinita at Route 66 (Hwy 60) and S4440 Rd). There is a Will Rogers Highway marker just across the road from the station.It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.
