Jack Mendenhall's Richfield Service Station, Buellton, California. As some of you know Jack was an avid collector or Service Station memorabilia early on when no one else cared much about the stuff. Chances are good that most of you have something in your collection that passed through Jack's collection, especially if you are on this side of the country. His son Mark has cleaned up the collection and spruced up the displays and the place really looks great. The place I'm talking about is "Mendenhall's Musuem of Gas Pumps" which is located to the left of the service station in the photo above. In the days when the station was open the space was used as a wrecking storage yard for the cars they brought in with the AAA tow service they ran out of the garage.

The Buellton Auto Court had a small Union 76 service station in the front on Highway 101. In 1949 when the highway was widened through Buellton they picked up the little station and moved it down the street. It stayed there until after a new freeway bypassed the town around 1964. It was finally torn down and now the lot is vacant.
