On June 27, at 5:30 p.m. the Preservation Society of Asheville and Buncombe County (PSABC) will host its 43rd Annual Meeting.
Following a brief update, everyone will will then be treated to a presentation by our own in house preservation historian, PSABC Executive Director Jack Thomson, on the history of automobile service stations.
Not yet a complete relic of days past, many of these ubiquitous buildings have been repurposed for uniquely new uses. Before there were credit cards and TV screens on gas pumps,attendants filled up your tank, washed your windshield and service stations were built with varied, even classic, architectural forms and detailing.
The culture evolved and made the transition to modern uses in historic settings. A Suggested donations of $10 helps support local preservation. Details at PSABC.org.
