The John Osterman Gas Station is a historic gas station on Route 66 in Peach Springs, Arizona. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.[1]

It was built in 1927 or 1929 or 1932, according to various sources.[2] According to Quinta Scott, it was built by Oscar Ostermann, John's brother, in 1932.[3] The gas station is owned by the Hualapai Indians, who nominated it for the National Register in 2009. Apparently the group has received a National Park Service grant to restore the station.[3]
