Midway Service Center - Vance County
Halfway between Oxford and Henderson along US 158 Business in Vance County - sits an abandoned old service station that once sold Shell gasoline. The Midway Service Center and Hartes Garage dates back to when US 158 was the main route between Henderson and Oxford and also the main east-west route in the furthest north parts of the state.
When these photos were taken in 2007 parts of the building were still in use as a laundromat, and as you can see, the grounds were still taken care of. Today, the bushes are well overgrown, and it is easy to miss if you don't keep your eyes open for it.
If you know any history or have historical photos of this great old service station. Please leave a comment or drop me an email.
