Main Content

One-story concrete and brick commercial building clad in stucco and decorative glazed tile.  It has a modified retangular plan and flat roof. Erected in 1936, the Art Deco building contains two separate business spaces, and is named for its most notable features -- a large concrete tower on the gas station and a smaller one over the café. The building is an outstanding and unusual example of Art Deco decoration applied to a roadside commercial building, and retains a high degree of architectural integrity. (NR nomination)
