Notes
Survey number HABS VA-1346
Building/structure dates: 1939 initial construction
Significance: The Short Pump Shell Station, built in 1938-1939, possesses the distinctive features of a type. Built in the "little bungalow" style, it exemplifies one of the most popular filling station designs of the period. Once common in small towns and rural areas, stations such as this are increasingly subject to abandonment, destruction, and alteration for alternative uses. The building's relatively high level of integrity is an important factor in the property's significance.
