Significance: The Pure Oil Service Station is a remarkably well-preserved example of an early corporate design service station. The Pure Oil Company developed the Tudor Revival style cottage architecture as a standardized design for its service stations. This design became the company's trademark throughout the country. The Pure Oil Service Station is also significant for its location on the Collingswood Circle, an early traffic rotary that dates to the same period as the station. (HAER No. NJ-114)
