White Eagle Gas Station - Goodland, Kansas
The restored White Eagle Gas Station in Goodland, Kansas is one of the many projects of Goodland entrepreneur Rod Cooper. The building was moved to this location in about 2013 and painstakingly restored and furnished. The only thing missing is the gas pumps. Not that pumps aren't available, Rod has about 200 old gasoline pumps, but he doesn't want them damaged.
This service station was originally in Kanorado, Kansas, near the state line, about 20 miles west of Goodland. The station is not open to the public, but visitors are welcome to courteously tour the grounds and look in through the windows. The photo of the interior, below, was shot through the window in the front door.
Rod Cooper, who moved and restored the old White Eagle Gas Station, has several businesses and other projects in Goodland, including a 3 story house which was moved to Goodland from St. Francis, Kansas in 2016, the restored Gulick-Cooper House and the historic Grand Opera House with its mural. Rod and his passions are interesting and a page about the Gulick-Cooper House will be added soon.
