The Abandoned Texaco Building in Bowie, Texas

I’m not sure what this building was used for. It looks like it was an old train depot at some point. But it looks like it could have been a small gas station since there are a couple of pumps sitting on the porch and an old Texaco sign hiding in the near by grass. Now its looks to be used as storage.

The abandoned Texaco building is in pretty good shape. The exterior wood is free of rot. Roof looks in decent shape except for some damage to the right front eave. Some of the windows are busted out and there looks to be old equipment and other stuff still inside. Even thought building isn’t public use it looks to be maintained enough to keep it from being a total lost.

If you know anything about this old building, have vintage images of the building, or who to contact about its history, please contact me.

About the Images

The image were shot just before a large storm system came into the area. The shots were taken by hand with my Sony Nex-3N and a Sony SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8 lens. I then edited the images in Adobe Lightroom. Next, I post processed with Topaz Clarity to add texture, brighten, and bring out the details in the images. Then I removed the dust spots. Finally, I used Topaz DeNoise to remove the noise from the images.

    • Thanks so much for the information. Would you by chance know when it was built and when it closed down? Maybe someone who I could contact about getting more information on the old building?
