This Rural Rt. 66 Filling station with an over the drive design, was built by Carl Ditmore in 1929.
W.O. Waldrop bought the business/home in 1934 and renamed the place, The Provine Station. A small tourist court was added for overnight stays.
In 1941 Lucille and Carl Hamons became the new owners. They raised their three Children Dene, Carl Jr. and Cheryl here.
For 59 years Lucille operated the business. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
