Historic Lincoln Highway Gas Station in Geneva, Illinois, to Be Preserved

From the September 1, 2012, Lincoln Highway Association.

The historic Pure Oil station in downtown Geneva will be preserved by the current owner.

The service bays will be converted into drive-thru lanes for a bank.

The owner had previously planned on tearing the whole structure down, but the city denied it.

The last time I saw it, it was a floral shop with lots of color and very fitting with the old-timey vibe Geneva wants to put forth.  To have lost the building would have been a real shame.  At least part of it will be saved.
