“A Prohibition-era gas station-turned-speakeasy”
In the 1920s, Ed Young, an enterprising service station owner, expanded his business to include the sale of moonshine. According to locals, Ed pumped gasoline in the front while a party was going on in the back. At one point, he was selling more moonshine than gasoline. Now just a shell of the original structure, Young’s Outlaw Station is missing its roof but the fireplace chimney still stands. With an enormous crack splitting the façade of the front wall, it’s impressive that it’s survived at all. Constructed using petrified wood and fossilized stones, the surprisingly decorative and stylish building features contrasting bands of red and white brick and beautiful, high-arched openings where the gas pumps once stood. Empty sockets are all that remain of lights that once lined the arches like a movie theater marquee.
