Photo 24-FSA-34


The Shell Station is now Buraski Builders. This hotel was called The Lodge for the longest time, but it was tore down in 2015. The lot now sits idle (it is currently farmed) until a new buyer adds something new!

Motel was built as a Ramada Inn around 1964-65 and in the 1980s became the Park Inn and later the Travelodge. Both the inn and Shell station (in later years a Citgo) are long gone. Were located just north of the U.S. 66 (South 6th), I-55 and later I-72 interchange.
