This motel started out as a smaller, single-wing, single story affair back in the 1950's and was operated by William and Leona Staples back then. It was also once operated by Mr. and Mrs. O. J. Campbell. Eventually, a new wing was added to create a chevron shape. Sometime later, a 2nd story was added on. The motel is operating as the Thumb Heritage Inn as of 2023. I wasn't sure if this motel was the 46 until I spotted the shrubs on the postcard and matched them up to the 1959 aerial at the same location of the Thumb Heritage.
