A 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 will be shared by the three parties after the city paves the lot once it is cleared. The structure had been a filling station for many years as seen below.

I don't know if the historic gas station building above (with Ray Lamberson as owner in 1948) is the same one having it's opening day in 1923 (as mentioned in the ad at left). I also don't know exactly when it was replaced by the "modern" Conoco station shown in the 1955 photo below.
I've 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 use in the 80s or 90s, but it has been sealed (as in the 2004 photo below) since I returned to Collinsville in 1999. -- Ted Wright
