El Castile

A fine example of Victorian masonry architecture, this beautiful limestone mansion was built in 1883 by cattle baron Dan Waggoner. It remains in private hands today, so it can only be viewed from the street.

Petrified Wood Gas Station

Originally built in 1927 and then whimsically covered in petrified wood in 1935, this old Texaco station looks like something straight out of the Flintstones.
