Art's Motel & Restaurant
The following is borrowed from the Illinois Association website re: recent work done at Art's (May 2007):
Art's Motel in Farmersville, Illinois experienced a bit of a renaissance as Route 66 Association of Illinois preservation volunteers brought back to life the Art's Motel sign. Several volunteers found themselves gathering to complete a great project in the works for some time. With the on-site leadership of Dr. Joe Coscino, the project really blossomed. Thanks go to Lou Vargo and Larry Scinto who logged many hours traveling, visiting and phoning the motel. Many thanks also go out to a steady and ongoing contributor towards preservation, association member John Ruh. The association donated as well—an amount of $500—towards the project.
Check out these before and after pics of the Art's Motel sign—nice work!
