The Miami Marathon Oil Company Service Station, constructed in 1929 and located on Route 66 in Miami, Oklahoma, is historically significant for its commercial association with Route 66 in Oklahoma. The station also is architecturally significant as an excellent example of a “house with canopy” station, designed in the Neoclassical Revival style. The building retains a high degree of its architectural and historic integrity. Contextually, it relates to “Commerce on Route 66 in Oklahoma (1926-1944).” The associated property type is Filling Stations, Service Stations and Garages, subtype “House with Canopy.”

The is the first of many RT66 vintage gas stations we visited as we make our way west to Phoenix. This station seems to have changed quite abit, with one picture I found had 2 pumps. If you view in Google Maps you will see that the dancer is faded, but it looks as if the station was freshly painted, including the silouette.
