Quaint little piece of history in the middle of an older section of Winston Salem. This is a stand alone attraction and is basically a "drive-by."

The shell station was located in a residential area but easy to find as it stood out. Interesting building. Only downside, it was closed so i couldn't go inside to see the memorabilia but definitely worth a visit.

We like to see Roadside Attractions. Even though there is not much to do, it was fun to mess around and get a dueling gas pump pictures! Cute gas station, sketchy neighborhood.

A piece of history. Worth the drive from Winston Salem . Refer the pictures for the accurate location, so you don’t have to wander and figure out this landmark.

This is a great little place to stop by and see from days gone by. It is the perfect photo op if you have classic car. This may be the only one left in the country.

This would even be better to stop in front of the old Shell Station if you were driving a vintage or classic car, but it was still worth the trip to see. Although the neighborhood appeared to be a bit run down the Shell was...More

We swung by after visiting Quarry Park. It’s a unique stop, definitely worth doing. It doesn’t take very long to park, take photos, and go. It would be nice to have a sign/board up outside with some historical facts of how these came to be,...More
