“Home to the "Mother of the Mother Road"”
Lucille's Service Station, a classic and historic gas station along Route 66 near Hydro, is one of only two upper-story, out-thrust porch style stations left on Oklahoma's stretch of Route 66. Built in 1929 by Carl Ditmore, the service station was renamed by Provine Station in the 1930s. In 1941, the Hamons family took over the operation of the station and Lucille Hamons, for which the service station is named, ran the business for 60 years. Lucille, who quickly became known for her friendly assistance to motorists, earned the nickname "Mother of the Mother Road."
Saw the old station from the new road as we drove past. It is merely a drive-by photo opp these days... if you want to stop, you'll have to drive past a mile or so before you can turn down onto the old Route 66 road and back up to the station.
Just down the road is the replica station, complete with a restaurant that is dedicated to Route 66. We stopped here for breakfast and the place was totally packed with travelers. Definitely stop for the experience and check out all the memorabilia, a ton of effort has gone into preserving the spirit of the old mother road here... great to see and experience.
fresh coat of paint and new pumps. looks great even driving by on I40
Just 2 gas pumps and that's it.
No pumps or paint when I went a few weeks ago.
This historic two-story gas station was built by Carl Ditmore in 1929 in a very rural area, in fact it's still very rural, but there's a nearby stream where locals find fossils and arrowheads.
Super cool. There is a nice plaque with historical info, and the building looks well kept. The pumps are beautiful and it was well worth the stop!
Pumps are gone but sign is still up. It's a bit of a shell of a building
Sadly the gas pumps have been removed now. The building is still there however it is clearly neglected and a complete mess inside.
Worth a quick stop to take a few pics.
The actual location is about a mile east of where this app navigates you to
