General Information:

This old motel goes back to the 1950's. I found several articles about crimes committed in and around the motel which probably doomed it. The owner shot a robbery suspect at this location in 1970. By 1984, the city was padlocking the doors and the local residents were happy about it as it had fallen into disrepair. The building was gone by the 1990's.
