Nichols Store Through the Years- Ken Bailey
The Nichols store has evolved over the years. Check it out!
This is Nichol's store in 1944, from a photo shared from the Rangely Outdoor Museum Archives.
It had gas pumps (the old kind, where you pumped the gas from the underground storage up into the glass area of the pump first, and then drained that amount into your car), a post office, and served as a Trading Post and General Store.
At this time, the building (which the note on the photo states was constructed in 1910) was located on the NORTH side of east Main Street, where it pretty much WAS the downtown of the settlement that would become Rangely until being moved across the street to its present location.
