“oldest standing Marathon Oil Company service station”

Built in 1929, claims to be the oldest standing Marathon Oil Company service station. It appeared weathered and neglected up until a few years ago, but has since been faithfully restored with a new brightly colored roof. The vintage pumps were added in 2010. In Miami, Oklahoma old Route 66 ran right down Main Street where the station still occupies a corner lot.  This location allowed convenient automobile access and increased visibility from a distance during the years when Route 66 became the nation’s major east-west artery.  Transcontinental Oil built the station in 1929 and a local family leased it for $40 a month.  Marathon Oil soon acquired Transcontinental and, before long, the station sported the Marathon Oil Company emblem, the Greek runner Pheidippides.  Because Pheidippides was the original marathon man, the company’s slogan, “Best in the long run,” was a natural choice.

June 11 2019 met the new owner. He plans to make it a cool retail spot but hasn’t had time as he bought it 3 weeks ago. Building currently In good condition but has no signage and those vintage pumps or pumps of any kind. It’s basically signless for now.

This is a good photo op and you can drive your car up to the pumps should you want a picture of it all. Two blocks up the road in the 300 block is a motor cycle museum, free, located behind the show room of a sales lot.
