Nebraska-Wyoming State Line
In the heyday of two-lane roads, one of the most prominent gas
stations was the State-Line Station. It was right on the border
between Nebraska andWyoming on the old Lincoln Highway. It
was large for its time, once having 18 gasoline pumps. The old
station building and the deserted pumps are all that remain today.

Fun Fact
A 1930s era gas station along U.S. Highway 30 in Sutherland is
being restored. The old station, which is just 12 feet by 18 feet,
had two restrooms and a counter/c sh register. A half- ozen
stations once stood in Sutherland along U.S. Highway 30,
plus more in other parts of town, when the Lincoln Highway
was first designated in 1913.
