Baker’s Motel was selected as the perfect location for the “Motel” sign which shares photographs of early transportation and motel signage as well as the history of development of these accommodations from the early 1900’s. There were “mom and pop” motels located all along Route 40 in all sizes. Many of these such as Baker’s Motel remain along older highways today.
