Surviving example of a brand-idenity building, designed by Andrew Eschweiler.
At one time, there were over 100 stations, like this one, around the midwest before the chain was bought out by Vacuum Oil Company, which was, in turn, later bought out by Mobil.
This is one of three remaining Wadham's stations that this reporter is aware of. (The other extant Wadham's Stations are in Cedarburg, where it serves as a jewelry store) and on North Avenue in Milwaukee, where it is currently unoccupied.
Edited to Add: A fourth Wadhams station has been located in Wild Rose, Wisconsin. The Pumphouse on The Mill restaurant is housed in the former station.
