Gas Station / RB Marine Service, 1800 State Street: 2000s(?)   3 comments

Posted at 3:04 am in Uncategorized





The only real google hit I'm getting for this is RB Marine Service, but it's obvious that this little building at the corner of State & Poplar Streets in Cayce was originally a gas station of some sort. Judging from the general look of the building, I would probably put it in the 1950s, and I'm sure it was full service and the guy would check your battery and tires while the gas was pumping..

I suspect that in the years between then, and whenever RB moved in, it was good number of other things. There's some sort of label scar on the awning, but nothing I can read.

  1. I lived in the house with the old barn across the street back in 2004-05. The marine shop guys moved out (to Charleston, I think) around the end of 2005. I had thought someone else had set up shop there.

    Come to think of it, that place does look like it used to be a service station.

  2. I like that barn. I took some pictures of it when I was at the station, but couldn't think of a way to work it in.

  3. That house at the 'corner' where P and O run together used to have a General Lee replica Dodge Charger sitting in front of it. It was the pace car for the old Columbia Speedway.
