Preserving and sharing the history of Wabaunsee County, Kansas
Jack Ginder built this gas station located three miles north of Alma on old Highway 40 in the late 1940s. Ginder owned numerous Quality Oil stations across Kansas. This station was razed when Interstate 70 was constructed, and a new Quality Oil station was built a quarter of a mile south on Kansas Highway 99. Jim Lewis operated both stations for over 30 years.

We appreciate everyone who made the Wamego Community Foundation Match Day a success. 72 separate gifts were received and we raised over $23,000! The funds are used toward the rehabilitation of the facade of the Farmers Union Coop building, also known as the annex.
