joint project between the Collinsville Funeral Home, The First Baptist Church
and the City of Collinsville is one step closer to completion as the church
took care of demolition of an unused structure there today. The property on
the north-east corner of 13th and Main Street is owned by the funeral home but

cleared. The structure had been a filling station for many years as seen below.

always known the corner as the "Conoco Corner" but it was at least
briefly a DX station in 1984. I don't have much information on the corner's
