Sears Service Station

In 1930, H.P. Sears opened this gas station in Rome, NY. It provided gas and other services to the local citizens until the 1970s. Rather than sell the property, the family kept it boarded up until 2006 when they restored it and opened it as a museum to show the way service stations once looked. It is a fun stop to make as you travel through upstate New York.
