Nicole , it's my understanding that this building was once a Conoco station. Actually it makes sinse as Conoco had several of these "Cottages" here in Richmond . Most were built between 1927 and 1934. I'll show ya two of the survivors when you an the other half get here . Ed Shaver

Nicole, and Ed:
This facility was a Horne's, a gift shop, restaurant, gas station competitor of Stuckeys. They were founded in 1949 in Florida, worked their way up the east coast in the 1950s with buildings like this. The last surviving Hornes shop (a franchise location that opened in 1960 http://hornes.com/) is located on U.S.301 at Port Royal, VA, not far from where this shop is located. Another abandoned location can be found in Virginia on U.S. 1 just south of South Hill. By the way, Baltimore style Conoco cottages, found across Virginia in Richmond, Fredricksburg, Staunton, Woodstock, Portsmouth, South Norfolk, Newport News, and Marion (that I can think of right off) look similar to this, but are not as big.

Thanks for the info! : )

Ed, maybe you were thinking about this one, just a few miles from the other one. I didn't post it because it didn't have the overhang and I was less sure it had been a gas station...tho when Bob took the picture for me, he left out the bays on the left. But the add on with the bays looked newer, so I was thinking it might have had a mechanic later on? It was another one I was going to stop next time to ask the owners the history.

In the central part of St. Louis, Mo. this 1967 Phillips 66 building is slated to be razed by a developer. It is currently in use as a Del Taco restaurant. The "flying saucer" round roof is 120 feet wide. It was a futuristic landmark design for the 1960s Teamsters Union Plaza, a complex with union healthcare facilities and retirement apartments. Preservationists are trying to avoid tearing down the unique building.
