Gay Parita Station
Paris Springs, Missouri
|Gay Parita today.|
The Gay Parita Station of today is one man's tribute to America's Main Street and the bygone way of life it symbolizes. That man's name is Gary Turner.
|The original Gay Parita, circa 1930s.|
After retiring from a colorful working life, Gary decided he wanted to “keep the past from slipping away,” so he acquired from his brother-in-law, Steve Faucett, what we now know as Gay Parita—a reproduction of an early-twentieth-century Sinclair gasoline station. The original Gay Parita station had been established back in the 1930s by a couple named Fred and Gay Mason, and the original native-stone garage from that early era still stands on the property.
|The old stone garage.|
Stop by and make a friend: Gary wants you to have one of his personalized postcards as a keepsake of your trip of a lifetime on old U.S. 66.
