The area on US HWY 70 is known as "Eno Crossroads" (designated Orange County site OR661), and was developed circa 1925, when the highway was built/expanded/improved.

The 1993 Orange County historic property survey states (based on the property owner’s statements) that the service station was built in 1929 but was moved approximately 100 feet from its original location, which was closer to the highway (the modern road is approximately 100 feet from the structure’s current location). The service station structure appears to be in its current location in the 1955 aerial photo (USDA), and the 1938 aerial photo also seems to have it in the same location. Since the informant was the daughter of the people who owned the property and service station, it is highly likely that her information is correct.
