Boots Motel
Carthage, MO

Carthage, MO --- The Boots Motel in historic Carthage is for sale and in possible danger of becoming a parking lot.

Well, not necessarily a parking lot, but another chain drugstore or restaurant which wouldn't be much different to a roadside or Route 66 enthusiast. The Boots Motel has been well known for years as a fine lodging establishment located right on the Mother Road with good hospitality, a historic motel that's been well taken care of, and a fine neon sign to boot.

Let's not let the Boots Motel become like the Finn's Motel marquee... just a memory.


Many thanks to Ron Warnick of the Friends of the Mother Road preservation organization for alerting us to this alarming news.
