The above old Sinclair Gas Station on South MaCart street has won a Historical Restoration Award (in 2011). The owner bought the station a few years ago to house his landscape business. Using a power washer to clean the place up, he discovered the word Sinclair under several years of old paint. It had been a childhood dream of his to own a Sinclair station one day, so you can image his excitement! After moving his business elsewhere, he decided to keep the station and restore it. While not a functioning station, where you can buy gas, everyone seems to enjoy looking at it!
The idea seems to be spreading. Yet another Sinclair station , this one on the west side of town, has been restored....and like the other... just fenced off like a display at a museum. I tried to find out if they were restored by the same person...but can't seem to find out any info on this place.
