Originally built as a gas station by the Standard Oil Company of Indiana in the late 1920s, the Red Crown Mini-Museum is now a representation of the place?s beginnings and history. It was restored by a local businessman, Don Stein, in 1991 when the area was threatened to be torn down and turned into a parking lot.

Today, the Red Crown Mini-Museum features the old gas station?s building, complete with the vintage items and motif. There is also a good number of antique automobiles on display, which is a part of Stein?s collection.

For folks looking for a retro stop, the Red Crown Mini-Museum can be a great place to go. It is filled with American memorabilia of the recent past, making it quite a nostalgic attraction.
