Remember the Coral Court!

 

 

The Coral Court Motel is one of the saddest stories on Route 66 in Missouri. Despite preservationists' valiant efforts to save the Art Deco masterpiece, it was demolished in 1995 to make way for a subdivision.

A project is under way to place a historic marker in front of Bill Bojé's Sunset Lanes, 7777 Watson Road in Marlborough, Missouri, next door to where the Coral Court once stood. This attractive monument -- pictured at left -- will be 7 feet tall, 2.5 feet wide and 4 inches thick and will weigh 1800 lbs.

The 1936 design depicts a likeness of Will Rogers with a Highway 66 logo. The marker will be engraved on the front with information about the motel. There will be custom engraving with donors' names on the back of the marker. For $200, we can assure that
you will receive donor recognition for your company, business or as a private individual.

The total cost of the marker is $4000, so any contribution is appreciated. To make a donation, please contact Shellee Graham:
