Inscription.  Burt C. Shasteen constructed this building for a drive-in filling station on the Dixie Highway, which entered Winchester by way of North High Street. Because the business phone number was 288, he named it the 288 Filling Station. Murrell Travis, who served twice as Winchester's mayor, leased the station and repair shop from 1931 to 1954, when he purchased the property and also operated an insurance office at the back. Between 1994 and 2005, the building was used for the City of Winchester's welcome center.
