GW Blair Filling Station

31 May 2024 8:16 PM | Anonymous

This is the G. W. Blair Filling Station and Store, which was located on West St. in Pittsboro. It was built in the 1940s by G. W. Blair, who also built the Blair Hotel in Pittsboro and served as Chatham County Sheriff from 1920 to 1932.

Unlike earlier commercial architecture, this building had a more residential look that mirrored neighboring one-story homes built in the 1920s. The building also served as Whitaker's Tire Sales and West End Grocery, as well as the Greyhound Bus Stop. The exterior was altered in 1989. The building now (2024) houses Keepsakes Frame Shop.
