This sign at Good Time Charlie's is lit at night. I assume that the spikes were originally lit independently or in some sort of pattern. For more, see this website. [map]

The WBAT radio station had moved but this sign was still there when this photo was taken in 2010. By 2012, the sign was gone. For more, see this website.

The Evergreen Park Business Center sign was probably from the 1950s or 1960s. It appeared to have had neon originally. The Enterprise panel was probably originally a message board which was replaced sometime after 2009. This photo is from 2012. By 2018, the sign was gone. For more, see this website.

The Pang-Ford Motel sign appears to be from the 1950s. The plastic "Motel" letters surely must have been neon originally. [map]

Gentis Dry Cleaning [gone]
Muncie, IN
Oasis Bar & Grill
Muncie, IN
Gentis Dry Cleaning last operated as Gentis-Huber Cleaners. These photos are from 2005. By 2013, the sign was gone. The building is still there.

The Oasis Bar & Grill opened in 1952 and this sign was installed then. The sign had not been fully lit since at least the 1980s. In 2021, it was restored by Finyl Vinyl Signs. There was a 20-foot-tall chainsaw carving of a basketball player in front of the bar in the early 2000s. By 2005, all that remained was his shoes. [map]

Wise Food
Muncie, IN
This sign originally belonged to a Wise Food Market which closed sometime in the 1990s. The store housed a couple of other supermarkets after that. The building was vacant when this photo was taken in 2009. By 2013, the sign had been removed. Later that year, it had been restored and installed at the Wise Country Market. [map]

This Odd Fellows Lodge was founded in 1835. This sign is probably from the 1950s. [map]

The Stein Glass Company opened here in 1939. The sign is probably from the 1950s or 1960s. [map]

I believe The Fair was some sort of department store. It closed in 1989 but the sign still remains. [map]

Schmitt Furniture opened in 1936. By 2018, the smaller sign (above left) was gone. The larger sign was installed in the 1960s. It was removed in 2019 during building renovation. In 2021, only the smaller sign had been reinstalled. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]
