The Western Hills Motel was built in 1955. This sign appears to be from then. There was originally a panel with horses pulling a covered wagon on top of the flat part of the sign.

Duffy's Cherry Cricket opened in 1945 as Mary Zimmerman's Bar. The bar moved to this location in 1950. In 1965, it was renamed Duffy's Cherry Cricket and the sign was built then.
