Perry’s Gas Station

Posted January 02, 2013 in Community Featured, Perry
The White Way “66” was one of Perry’s many service stations.

The White Way “66” was one of Perry’s many service stations.

From the time Perry’s first gas and service station appeared on the scene in July of 1917, the Perry community has been served by some of the friendliest, most helpful service station owners in the state of Iowa. This first gas station was a Standard Oil business, and while you probably don’t remember it, let us see how many of these service stations you do remember.
