MONROE - Now home to a water-conditioning business, a former Pure Oil station on 9th Street in Monroe has been featured in the new book "Fill 'er Up: the Glory Days of Wisconsin Gas Stations" from the Wisconsin Historical Society Press. First opened in 1935, the quaint English Cottage-style design is in keeping with the domestic image Pure Oil strove for in the '30s, though its bright blue tile roof was meant to be an eye-catching symbol of the company to passing motorists. The station continued to dispense fuel until the 1970s.
