     History
    Another abandoned business on Old U.S. Hwy 80. This one was a gasoline distributor's warehouse and office. Known as the Guthrie Warehouse, the Guthrie Oil Company stored and repaired gasoline pumps and kept service stations supplied. The odor of gasoline fumes from the dozens of old leaky pumps stored inside is still very strong.

    All along old Highway 80 in Texas there are many defunct commercial buildings and abandoned places to visit. This is just another one to check out if youre nearby.

    NOTE: 2013 satellite imagery shows partial demolition or fire has knocked down much of this structure.

    UPDATE May 2018 2X: only the foundation remains

     Future Plans
    Vandalism, fire and the elements have taken a heavy toll on the building itself but the location is for lease and could be rehabilitated into something useful I suppose.
