This is a photograph of the Old Richwood ESSO Park Place Filling Station, location at 1 Park Place, Richwood, W .Va. We believe this station picture was taken during the 1940's and 1950's. The Standard Esso Dealer ( Sign ) were made during that period.

Exxon formally replaced the Esso, brands on January 1, 1973, in the USA. The name Esso was a trademark of Standard Oil Company of New Jersey and attracted protests from other Standard Oil spin-offs because of its similarity to the name of the parent company, Standard Oil. As a result, the company was restricted from using Esso in the USA except in West Virginia and those states awarded to it in the 1911 Standard Oil antitrust settlement.
