Weaver's Antique Service Station is a gas station built in c.1930, which is restored and still evocative of the 1930s, located in Burlington, West Virginia on Northwestern Turnpike (also known as U.S. Route 50), near its intersection with Patterson Creek Road.
It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a contributing building within the Burlington Historic District. It is a vernacular wood frame building, with stucco plaster over 1/8 inch wire mesh. A wood outbuilding, built c.1900, is included in the property, which in 1992 served as a museum of local historical artifacts. It is located on the south side of U.S. Route 50.
Antique vehicles are stationed at the gasoline pumps of the service station, and within the shop shelves are lined with items from a bygone era. On the counter near the cash register lies a book of gasoline ration cards as if it were 1943. The proprietor, Ed Weaver, died in November 2009. It is now closed to the public.
