This former service station and community store was built in the 1920s as a modernized (i.e. for the convenience of the automobile driver) replacement for the 1880s store, which stood across the road. Charles Samuel McDade owned and operated this store by 1940.

This crossroads was known variously as McDade or McDade's and Hurst's over the years, as shown on various 20th century maps.

From Orange County DEAPR's files:

"This typical 1920s service station features a gable-front frame building, with a projecting gable that protected the gas pumps.  The building is covered in wood weatherboards and its canopy is supported by bungalow-style posts.  It has a center entry, two-over-two windows, a central brick chimney, and a standing seam metal roof."
