Motels and tourist courts once dotted the
entire expanse of
Route 66. As the interstates replaced the vintage path, many of these
were bypassed, quickly losing their customers and often sending the
businesses into bankruptcy. Beyond
Route 66 meanders along the North Service Road, where several old
motels are in various stages of disrepair.
This old motel, on the north service road in St. Clair,
appears to be still "lived in."
Perhaps, it is rented as apartments. Kathy
Weiser, November, 2007.
The Agape House, at 1095 N Service Rd W
in St. Clair, was once an
old motel. Today the Agape House ministry group provides assistance to
families in need. Kathy Weiser, November, 2007.
This old motel, near
is well kept and appears to be a private residence. It is located
before Highway JJ, at IN8-115 North Service Road.
