The Aaron Plaza Motel also included a mobile home park next door. It goes back to the 1960's. It was once operated by Henry and Ruth De Geest. They took over when the motel was sold in 1972. William W. Sprik sold it to Praire Inc, a Grand Rapids based real estate holding company at that time. According to the aerial photos, the mobile home park was removed. A few years later, sometime in the early 2000's, the motel was also razed. As of 2023, Old Mission Bank sits on the property. Sometime along the way, it must have been known as the Blue Swan Inn as the postcard is stamped as such. It also contained the Gas Light Lounge.
