Thanks to Peter Martin for the identification. He recalls a diner and auto parts store being located here and says there was a large peach or orange “sign” where the car wash is now located.

    Poole’s. as I remember,was a small diner and a auto parts store. Had a large orange or peach decoration on lawn to north, where car wash is now. Brother Fleming Martin could surely tell more than I! Peter

    My Grandfather Poole owned this station. back in the 50’s many a tourist had their picture taken next to the “Big Orange”. Before I95, this was the main route from NY to Florida & a very busy little place!
