    This was once a thriving motel and gas station. All I was able to learn was it went out of business when the highway was put in. The local historical societies and newspapers were of very little help.

     Future Plans
    I was driving north on 41 not too long ago and I saw that part of the building has already been demolished, and there is some excavation equipment on site.

    The Motel is mostly removed with the exception of the end room/managers room #10. This has an old kitchenette and connecting room with rotting bed
