Hugh the Hometown Mechanic - Lincoln Highway - Ogallala, Nebraska
"Hugh," the hometown mechanic embodies the spirit of the Lincoln Highway. He commemorates a simpler, gentler time, when an attendant would pump your gas, check your oil, and wave you on your way with a smile. Built in 1922, Ogallala's Spruce Street Station is considered one of the best preserved of fewer than 20 former Standard Oil stations still standing in the state. Renovated in 2002-2003, it's listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
