The entrance from E.State St. is closed, the three islands were taken out along with the gas pumps and Rt. 18 has been made a four lane highway with a turning lane in the middle. The building it self has not changed outside nor inside. When this picture was taken, there was a Pennzoil station across the street and you can see that sign shows gas selling at .95 a gallon. In the early 1920s when that Pennzoil station was built, along with a mechanic's bay. At that time the intersection of Rt.18 and E.State St. was called Hermitage Corners. There are photos of that building inside and outside. They also had a lounge where customers could wait while having their autos worked on.
