I needed gas anyway, so why not check it out since I was in town, I thought the shop would be informative, the attendents were great as they still wash front & back windows, just the plain typical service station

Getting gas at Reighard's is like stepping back in time. Not only do you get your gas pumped, but you get your front and rear windows cleaned. Very friendly service there.

They still pump your gas and clean your windshield! It's one of America's first gas stations. Located between Horseshoe Curve and Railroaded Museum.

The Oldest Gas Station In The Country and still offers full service. An interesting stop and we got a little brochure telling us about the company.

Its a full service gas station with a small convenience store. It was pretty cool to get gas at the oldest gas station in America.

Reighard's is the way gas stations use to be. It's hard to find a gas station like this and the guys are always friendly. They also can refill your propane tank.
