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.
The address is 1111 E Sprague St., Winston-Salem, NC 27107. (It’s located at the corner of Peachtree and Sprague Streets.)
