This is an old fill up station on hwy 25-E in Cumberland Gap. Most likely on the portion of the road that traveled across the mountain from Cumberland Gap to Middlesboro, KY. The road was so dangerous, it was replaced with a tunnel that goes straight through the mountain. The road was removed and is now part of Cumberland Gap National Historical Park. The Wilderness Road trail travels along the former highway.

These are some old pictures of Cumberland Gap, Tennessee.
