Mahan’s Filling Station, a unique example of the earliest of gas stations, is now on display at Fulgenzi’s Pizza & Pasta located across from the Historic Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield.
The roadside attraction is now accessible as a great photo and souvenir opportunity for Route 66 visitors. The late Bill Shea Sr. bought the small service station in 2000 from John Mahan of Middletown to add to the Shea Gas Station museum collection. In 2015, Local entrepreneur Jeff Fulgenzi purchased Mahan’s as the Shea collection was being auctioned off after Shea passed away in 2013. Fulgenzi is committed to keeping the iconic filling station on the Route 66 corridor and has moved the station to Fulgenzi's where it currently is being restored.
