While looking for an old fort outside Voca, TX I ran across an old abandoned motel. It appears to be typical of the ones built back in the 1930's. Most had fairly small rooms and catered to the truckers and occasional families that would travel the then horrible roads across Texas. Like many in its day, it had a nice parking area, a common area outside that I'm sure was well kept and allowed for people to gather in the evenings.

Like all of the places posted here, neglect and time have ravaged this place and it is now literally a shell of its former self.

Used to hunt near Voca (now a reformed hunter) but never found this little gem. I do have an interesting wild hog and UFO story(s) from Voca I'll share someday. I want to believe you see.

They called them "Motor Courts". Sure are a lot of them in Texas and some still in decent shape.

Good job. I don't know that I've ever been in Voca but it's off the beaten path to Brady.

"now a reformed hunter" Does that mean you hunt with a smaller caliber rifle or you switched to a bow?

He gets his meat at the supermarket where no animals were harmed in its harvesting.


Nice pictures! I love the old 30s & 40s automobile-centric stuff. Places like this were a life saver when traveling long distances back then. I like how you mentioned the outdoor courtyard area - a relic from a past time where we valued meeting new people and building a sense of community.

Damn, I saw this thread and thought Peptic finally showed up!

I’m seriously thinking about driving down there and knocking on their door... I’ll make him regret ever sharing with me where he resides, lol, but maybe he’ll think twice about disappearing on us again!

Fair enough question. I was an archer and bow hunted for years, the only two times I hit a deer they ran off and could not be found, I never bow hunted again.

Smaller caliber? Ive killed larger animals than a deer with a .22RF, it don't get much smaller than that.

No I just gave up sport hunting, I mean I have rifles that can hit stuff out to 1000yds without much trouble, sitting in a box waiting for an animal to come to some feeder full of corn that's been put out? That's not even hunting in my mind.

I just chose not to sport hunt, I have no problem with others that do its just not my idea of fun anymore.

Signed,

Reformed
