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.
