Gus' Station was built in 1931 in Ellendale. It was across the street from the former Creamery, which is now Al's Body Shops. Gus and Hilda Jacobson began a 30-year run operating the station, starting in 1946. It was a well-known hangout spot for Ellendale school students. The building was moved to the Village of Yesteryear in 2014.
