In the fall of 1940 the Nunda News reported that brush was being cleared and a barn was being torn down at 29 N. State Street to make way for a new gas station. Upson and Maybach, Kendall distributors from Batavia, had purchased the Malcolm Bennett property and were building a model station of fireproof construction. Having a spacious repair and service room, three pumps and sanitary rest rooms, the business opened with fanfare in November 1940. Dwight VanDorn and Bill Kernahan were the first managers. It became the James McColl service station for many years. Now it is the quarters of the Nunda Ambulance Corps and houses two ambulances.
