Airplane Service Station

Location: Powell, TN

Unique architecture was a great way to attract customers to roadside businesses, like this airplane structure built in the 1930s as part of a gas station. Named as one of the 10 most endangered roadside places by the Society for Commercial Archeology, efforts are being made to restore the building to an appropriate condition to host a new local business. This airplane cannot fly or offer you any service today, but it continues to remain treasured by its local community.
