Adaptive Reuse in Baytown, TX at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Baytown

Building History

If you take a short trip down a main road, you are more than likely going to pass a Shell fuel and service station. Shell Stations have been bringing quality gas and customer service to communities since 1912. Shell is viewed as one of the largest and most prolific oil and gas companies in the world. They merged with Texaco in 1997, which only accelerated their growth and reputation as the industry leader. The industry giant had humble beginnings going back to 1833 when a shopkeeper named Marcus Samuel decided to sell his antique business to pursue importing and exporting seashells, which were in high fashion at the time. His export and import business would soon expand from seashells to machinery, textiles, tools, rice, silk, sugar, wheat, flour and eventually oil when the first petrol powered internal combustion engines arrived in 1886. With the industrial revolution, the world would never be the same and communities would become reliant on gasoline to thrive. Shell built gas stations cross continentally to serve those communities. U-Haul couldn't let such an iconic building fall into ruin, so the site was acquired in 1979 and converted into a storage and dispatch center.
