About 1927, a gas station was constructed south of the Curtiss Garage by Wm. Kleissig. It was originally a Standard station. Throughout the years, the service was operated and/or owned by Big Four Oil Co., Walter Ecker, Sherman Long, Rodney Hawks and Robert Gosse. In 1966, after Rod hawks purchased the station, he built an addition to the original station...selling to Robert Gosse in 1970. Rod Hawks then built a shop at Curtiss Corners. In 1978, Les Bowen purchased the gas station from Robert and Sharwin Gosse and now is used for storage.
