Texaco
Metcalf, NC

In the town of Metcalf, which is essentially a town on the map but no town when you get there, was this restored Texaco station at a cross roads. It is miles from the nearest actual downtown but the sign mentions it was restored by the people of Metcalf. The building looked new so maybe all that is left from the original structure are the pillars. 05-08

 The old 50's modern gas station was in Wilkesboro, just a few miles south. I have no idea what kind of gas was sold here but I have seen several stations of this style around the Carolinas, all of which are used for other things. 05-08
