Rest Haven Court

Springfield, Missouri

As you enter Springfield from the east on Kearney Street, just prior to the left turn onto Glenstone, keep a watch out for the Rest Haven Motel and its enormous neon sign.

The Rest Haven is still very much alive and well on old Route 66, as evidenced by the night-time photograph at right taken in the 1990s.

Springfield is blessed with many, many motels, but the Rest Haven was, and still is, one of the first that the westbound Route 66 traveler encounters. That fact has certainly helped to set it apart over the years and allowed it to remain in business while so many others have faded away.

The sign to which the Rest Haven owes so much of its distinctiveness was added in the 1950s (the motel itself began operating in the late 1940s).
