The Most Historic Gas Station In North Carolina Belongs On Your Bucket List

The Tar Heel State is home to a number of awe-worthy roadside attractions (see 15 in this previously published article). However, the giant shell gas station in Winston Salem is among our favorites. It was built in 1930 as a marketing tool for a new local Shell distributor and it’s giant facade is one every North Carolinian should see in person.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
