Sinclair Service Station
3501 East 11th Street (map it)
The Sinclair Service Station, built in 1929, is an excellent example of the house with service bay station type, and is located on the original Route 66 in Tulsa, which is lined with commercial buildings constructed from the 1920s through the present. It consisted of an office, covered pump station, and a double service bay. The station possesses design characteristics of the Spanish Eclectic style, including a stucco exterior, a triangular parapet, and a clay-tile visor roof. Massive stucco columns support the porte-cochere. The upper corners of each of the three openings into the pump area have decorative, stucco detailing. The open pump station retains the original pressed-tin ceiling. Popular in the Southwest United States, the Spanish Eclectic station was comparable to the other domestic forms including the Tudor Revival cottage-type.
The Sinclair Service Station was listed in the National Register on December 13, 1996. It was listed under National Register Criteria A and C, and its NRIS number is 96001486.
