Description

Lucille's Service Station, a classic and historic gas station along Route 66 near Hydro, is one of only two upper-story, out-thrust porch style stations left on Oklahoma's stretch of Route 66.  Built in 1929 by Carl Ditmore, the service station was renamed by Provine Station in the 1930s.  In 1941, the Hamons family took over the operation of the station and Lucille Hamons, for which the service station is named, ran the business for 60 years.  Lucille, who quickly became known for her friendly assistance to motorists, earned the nickname "Mother of the Mother Road."

Was just there on May 4, 2014. The station is in the renovation process. The outside looks mostly complete. There are now what looks like small bungalows built right next door. The gas pumps are not there, but the floor hardware is. So maybe they are being restored. I suspect it will be a functioning museum/gift shop soon. Met a guy from the UK, at that spot. He was heading west on Route 66 and we were heading east. Good to see some landmarks being restored on the Mother Road.

I visited the station on september 7th 2013. It was abandon. I hope someone byes it and keeps in in shape for the future. This are the buildings we come to visit to Route 66. Klaas
