The Gateway Motel celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2004. To celebrate, the owners had new landscaping added in front and removed this classic neon sign. A plain and simple backlit plastic sign with advertising space underneath was erected on the opposite side of the property. Except for some minor fading in the paint, the neon sign was in perfect working order when it was taken down. 04-07
