The perfect restored sign on the side of an old Fern Bluff, Texas gas station. Today the building serves as a event space.
The facing on the café, motel and gas station is petrified wood. All of which was found nearby. The motel and gas station are abandoned. However, the café is still serving. Built: ca. 1935 by E.F. Boydston. The family continued operation for several years. The café closed in 1964, to be reopened several years later by Nancy Rosendahl (one of E.F. grandchildren) and her husband, Jim. The cabins closed around 1970 and the gas station in 1988. Another image of the plaza can be found here
A simple, quintessential image of a tractor and a barn, yet it captures my imagination. I can almost hear the memories embedded, what the farmer thought as he ploughed the fields or the farmer's children as they played high and seek in the barn.
