"Hugh"

This friendly hometown mechanic embodies the spirit of the Lincoln Highway in Keith County. He commemorates a simpler, gentler time, when the 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 the fewer than 20 former Standard Oil stations still standing in the state. Through the efforts of the Ogallala's Main Street Program, the Spruce Street Station was renovated in 2002-2003, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
