Hess Station, 7351 Two Notch Road: March 2009   16 comments

Posted at 9:43 pm in Uncategorized

I just noticed the other day that this Hess filling station by the K-Mart on Two Notch Road was gone. It's by the Wendy's that's gone, which is by the Casual Male which is gone, making that strip something of a desolation row.

I parked at K-Mart and walked over to have a look.

I didn't check for a dial tone, but the phone is there and unvandalized. Look at the Bell System logo on the booth -- that's been there a while!

They seem to have covered all the pumps in plywood -- I assume the pumps are still under there anyway.

Of course not everything was secured.

The State seems to have figured out not to do a delivery.

This is rather interesting. At first blush it appears that they have built an observation deck for the creek that runs between the station and K-Mart. On later reflection, it's probably so the guy changing the letters and numbers on the sign would have a place to stand.

And, of course, as on any empty lot, there was a guy selling sofas out of a truck before I got there -- he packed up because it started to rain.

  1. Here's a bit of trivia for you. Mr. Hess was the owner of the NFL's NY Jets. That is why their uniforms are the same color as Hess signs, green and white!

  2. I didnt know it was gone now.. shows how much attention I pay when going by there. Also, whatever happened to people calling "Two Notch" "DENTSVILLE"..isnt that what it still is? When K-Mart opened there, it was known as the Dentsville K-Mart..everything was in "Dentsville" what happened?

  5. Thanx tom for the trivia, so what happens to old gas stations as far as the gasoline goes? do they suck all of it out or leave it in, and when they do a demolition, do they just leave that part alone or what? I want to know abt that

  6. Federal regulations require the removal of all fuel and the underground tanks must be removed by a licensed company.
