STRANGE OLDE GAS STAIONS - THE WORLDS ONLY FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT SERVICE STATION IN CLOQUET, MINN

The R. W. Lindholm Service Station is a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed service station located at 202 Cloquet Avenue in Cloquet, Minnesota. The station, which was built in 1958 and is still in use, is the only filling station designed by Wright. It was originally part of Wright's utopian Broadacre City plan and is one of the few designs from that plan which was actually implemented. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Wright had designed station owner Ray Lindholm's house in 1952, and knowing Lindholm worked in the oil business, he presented him with a proposal to design the gas station envisioned as part of Broadacre City. Lindholm, seeing an opportunity to beautify gas station design, agreed to his plan, and Wright completed his design in 1956. Despite the importance of gas stations to the Broadacre City concept, the building was the only service station Wright designed.

The station opened in 1958 under Lindholm's name; it later became a Phillips 66 station and influenced the company's design plans for other filling stations. It currently operates under the Spur brand. The station was added to the National Register of Historic Places on September 11, 1985, for its architectural significance
