The founder of Phillips Petroleum Company grew up near Creston and a refurbished 1931 brick Phillips 66 gas station has been turned into an excellent place to “fill up” with information about the area.

Creston/Union County’s Tourism & Information Center located on Highway 34 and Park Street, houses information and scrapbooks about the Phillips family and information on Creston & Union County’s many attractions, upcoming events and celebrations.

Period gasoline pumps, the Phillips 66 trademark shield, and Phillips’ traditional colors of green and orange have been used to
retain the historic value of the building.
