Long Description:
The Bent Door - is now the official name, of this 1947 Phillips vintage gas station, & Trading Post.

From the Oldham County Chamber of commerce Web Site;
"The Bent Door was a unique 24-hour Route 66 cafe, souvenir shop and gas station. Never officially named the "Bent Door Cafe", it came to be called that because the doors and windows - recycled from an WWII Army Air Force Base watch tower - where bent. It was a bustling business during the hey-day of Route 66 and has spurred many heart-warming stories and memories. Even as it stands vacant, many people stop to reminisce and take pictures of the building." Text Source: (visit link)
