Winner! Whereizzit in South Dakota?

Think you know where this historic building is located? Leave a comment with your guess. On August 1, we will randomly select a winner from the correct guesses. The winner receives a collection of South Dakota Magazine products.



We Have a Winner!


We have a winner in our July Whereizzit contest! We drew Colleen Schulte's name from the pool of people who knew that this structure can be spotted in Geddes, South Dakota. In former days, it was a WNAX gas station, but now it's part of Geddes' historic village. 

Thanks for your guesses, everyone!

It is between Keystone and Hill City, South Dakota, along the 1880 Train track on the south side of the track. I heard that it was where the Orphan Train stopped to allow people to "adopt" orphans from the cities during the early years of settling the west.

It is the old railway depot building that Bill Hoffman, the Mobil dealer, used as his office and it is now located in the Pioneer Village in Geddes, SD. If there are singed spots along the door frame on the inside just underneath the handle, that is the result of Dave DuFrain and me booby-trapping the door with fireworks a long time ago.

The first time I saw this building was in the early 40s. It was located at the intersection of hwy 50 and the middle road into Geddes.That might be when it was a WNAX gas station although I don't know that. It then got moved to the lot west of the old Noll furniture building on 4th st. Later it was moved south of the old Depot and used as a Mobil Oil Co agents office, Jim Phillips,Babe King, and Bill Hoffman the last Mobil Oil agent in Geddes. It now sits in the historical park min Geddes.
