This stood on Route 549 just south of the intersection at Lawrence Corners on the eastern side of the road just up the knoll. There is a (tan) house on that location now. This was operated at various times by Letta Giles and her husband, Mr. Mitchell. Carl Belz also operated it. Letta tells a story of the dog in the photo who saved her from being kidnapped by a band of "gypsies" one time when she was operating the store. Joan NASH O'Dell remembers waiting for the school bus at this building. Letta provided the photo.

Hi Joyce -
    Enjoying looking over your recent pages.  Can't help commenting that I remember that filling station very well.  My uncles, Gordon and Sterling Brace, introduced my brother Jim and me to Fawn soft drink there in the 1930s.
Best regards,
David Smith
