Did You Know… where this service station was located and who owned it? This was Clarence Murphy’s Conoco station on east Willis Avenue.

The station had several other owners over time. In the late ’50s and the ’60s the teens of Perry drove up and down Willis Avenue and Second Street. This was a spot many of us “hung out” when we were not scooping the loop.

In this era before video games and the internet, this was how we connected.
