Arrowhead
Motel
Gillette, WY
Glenrock
Independent
Glenrock, WY
Masonic Lodge
Glenrock, WY
The Arrowhead Motel was built in 1964 and this sign appears to be from then. This photo is from 2012. By 2014, the neon had been removed and the sign painted brown. A vinyl sign was tacked onto the panels. [map]

The Glenrock Independent is the local newspaper, established in 1922. I don't know if this sign was adapted from a printer and stationery store or if the space has always served as a store and newspaper office. This sign is probably from the 1950s. [map]

This Masonic Lodge sign features an usual design with glass globes. Usually, Masonic Lodge signs have the globes arranged vertically. These globes are also spherical while normally they are flat like this. [map]

Coachman Inn Motel
Green River, WY
Green Gander Bar
Green River, WY
The Coachman Inn Motel sign appears to be from the 1960s. [map]

The Green Gander Bar sign is probably from the 1950s.

Rawhide Motel
Jackson, WY
Antler Motel
Jackson, WY
Million Dollar Cowboy Bar
Jackson, WY
The Rawhide Motel sign may be from the 1950s or 1960s. There is a similar sign on the roof of the motel. For more, see this website. [map]

The Antler Motel signs appear to be from the 1950s or 1960s. Both of them are lit at night. For more, see this website. [map]

The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar opened in 1937 at the Cowboy Bar. It became the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in the 1940s. There were previously neon details and signs on the facade where the bulb sign is now. I believe the bulbs are solidly lit. They were probably chasing bulbs originally. The bulb sign was there by 1959. The neon sign was there by the mid-1940s. It reads "Cowboy Bar" on one side and "Welcome" on the other. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4. [map]

Four Winds Motel
Jackson, WY
Top Hat Motel [gone]
Jeffrey City, WY
Stock Exchange Bar
Kemmerer, WY
The Four Winds Motel sign appears to be from the 1950s or 1960s. [map]

The Top Hat Motel previously had the word "COATS" in the mid-section of the top hat. The Coats were the owners of the motel. In fact, I'm not sure if the name of the motel might actually have been "Coats Motel". This photo is from 2012. In 2013, the sign was sold and removed. For more, see this website.

The Stock Exchange Bar signs are probably from the 1950s and/or 1960s. For more, see this website. [map]

The Moorcourt Motel may have gone by a different name originally. The neon sign appears to be from the 1950s or 1960s. The plastic sign was probably added later. The sign has been repainted to depict the nearby Devils Tower National Monument. [map]

Hatchet Resort
Moran, WY
The Hatchet Resort was built in 1954 as the Hatchet Motel. The first two signs were adapted for the name change sometime after 2006. These photos are from 2012. I believe the hatchet sign at the Sinclair gas station on the resort property was built in recent years. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]
