I've always wanted to check this out, I finally had time yesterday.

Avon Motel on Route 66. I couldn't really find any good info about it other than it was probably built in the 1930's. By looking at the length of the sidewalk, it appears that at one time there were many more units that are gone now.

I was looking through a Route 66 book the other day and found a pic of it. Apparently at an earlier time, it was called Acme Courts. I googled it and found these postcards.

We went by again yesterday. It's just slowly wasting away.

I also read today that Avon and Acme were not the same place. So I guess my previous post is in error.
