With lots of cool old places along Hwy 80, I was always entertained, wondering about the history of those old buildings/stores/businesses.
Today, I lucked upon a piece that screams Hwy 80 history. This old sign holder once stood along Hwy 80 in front of an old drive up lodge/motel in Terrell, Texas. It still sports the chains that held the vacancy sign.
I remember driving by that old place. They had metal tables with round, metal stools. You could drive right up to your room. There was a playground for guests' kids. Talk about a friendly place! Ok. So, maybe in more recent years, you could rent it by the hour. But, that doesn't change the quaint place that it was for so many years. The motel/lodge buildings were demolished a few years back.
It's always fun to learn the history of a cool piece. For it to hold so many memories for me, makes it especially cool! By the way, I don't have the measurements, but it is a good size. And yes, it is for sale. You can own Hwy 80 history!
