Circa 1919Abram Woodbury, one of the first permanent settlers in Mesquite, built a new home here circa 1919 and opened a mercantile store. He also built overnight cabins for tourists and operated Mesquite's first gas station. Abram purchased gasoline by the drum and hauled it by team and wagon from the train station in Moapa, selling it one gallon at a time. Later a regular tank was put in, and the gas came out by turning a handle.
