Located directly on Route 66, The Afton Station Packard Museum, is yet another historic Gas station and mechanics shop that has been repurposed into a museum. This one is dedicated to the Packard and other classic cars — but I can’t tell you much as it was closed-up by the time I got there (4:30 ish on Sunday).
That said, the town it is in is DEAD… to the point of scary; I’d say a good 80% of the businesses on this street are closed up and the few people that I saw (were more stumbling than) walking around all looked suspiciously like meth users.
So between that and the weather, I was pretty motivated to not stay here too long. I did however peer through the windows, and from the look of it,
A very large gift shop that once again is mostly filled with EXACTLY the same merchandise I’ve seen elsewhere. And a collection that consists of seven cars shoved into the garage, with very little to no explanations.
One thought on “Afton Station’s classic Packards, Afton, OK”
You are exactly right…the town is deserted! The Afton station is closed. The owner was killed in a farm accident in August 2018 (as we heard from locals). The son was supposed to take over but unsure if that is happening. When we looked in the window there was but two old cars not six. The sign says open, but alas no.
