Though this structure has been severely modified over the years, the original structure remains, with fanlight windows. Thanks to Frank Flanders III for the identification.

Stores like this were the convenience stores of their time, offering groceries, sundries and gas. Few remain in business today. Frank Flanders III writes: [this] was a gas station, country store with a small meat counter, as well as a bait shop owned by Frank B. Flanders Sr. It was built in the early 1960’s and closed in the 70’s.
