The Ray S. Coley service station was built in 1936-37 on a small chunk of land adjacent to the Venable Tobacco Company warehouse, created by the realignment of Pine Street in the 1920s to meet S. Roxboro (north of the tracks,) rather than meet East Pettigrew at a perpendicular. (The Venable Warehouse follows the original alignment of Pine Street.)

The station was torn down in the 1970s.

The small piece of land is now a landscaped area adjacent to the Venable Center.
