In Dentsville was the Grand Motel sign. Talking to the owner, this place had for some time been a rent by the hour motel. He was slowly restoring the motel back to a normal family place and intends to have the sign brought back to it's 1950's look. According to an old postcard picture, the star is not original. He turned on the neon so I could see how it looked. He wants to replace the flashing bulbs in the star with LED's and said the old blinking bulbs need to be replaced far too often. 02-08
