Vista Grande
Motel (now VARR)
Heber City, UT
Mac's Motel
Heber City, UT
La Salle Hotel
Helper, UT
The Vista Grande Motel was here by 1965. The sign's neon had been missing for many years. This photo is from 2014. The sign was gone by 2015. It turned up around 2018 in town at VARR, an Airstream trailer restorer. The sign has been retexted, repainted, and neon added. The "MOTEL" panel has been removed and replaced with an Airstream-shaped panel. For more, see this website. [map]

Mac's Motel was built in 1954. This sign may be from then or the 1960s. By 2018, the neon had been removed from the sign's letters. For more, see this website. [map]

The La Salle Hotel was built in 1922. These signs appear to be pre-1950s. [map]

Cotton Bottom Inn
Holladay, UT
Sun-N-Sand Motel
Kanab, UT
Parry Lodge
Kanab, UT
Trail Motel [gone]

The Cotton Bottom Inn bar and restaurant opened in 1966. This sign must be from then. The beer drinking rabbit was apparently inspired by the Bugs Bunny cartoon character. In 2019, the sign was removed for restoration. [map]

Timpanogos Harley-Davidson
Lindon, UT
The Timpanogos Harley-Davidson dealership has several neon signs inside. I believe the Stinker Cut-Rate gas station sign is vintage. The neon diver is modern. It was based on the Starlite Motel in Mesa, AZ.

S.E. Needham
Logan, UT
Old Trapper Inn
Logan, UT
Superior Cleaners
Logan, UT
S.E. Needham Jewelers was established in 1896 as is believed to be the oldest jewelry store in Utah. I don't know how old the street clock in front of the store is. It was probably dressed with the neon and sign in the 1950s. [map]

The Old Trapper Inn was built in 1940 as the Bridgerland Motel. It later became the Old Trapper Motel. The sign had neon and read "Mini Theme Rooms" at the bottom. It is probably from the 1960s or 1970s. [map]

The Superior Cleaners sign is probably from the 1950s. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Vacuum World
Midvale, UT
Amco Steel Inc. [gone]
Midvale, UT
Vacuum World opened in 1969. This sign appears to be from then. [map]

Amco Steel Inc. was gone but these signs remained for many years. They were probably built in the 1950s. The signs were still there in 2017 but gone by 2018. They are now in a private collection.

Hotel Horn Silver
Milford, UT
Hotel Milford
Milford, UT
Norge Appliances
Milford, UT
The Hotel Horn Silver was built as the Atkin Hotel around 1902. Around 1943, it was renamed the Horn Silver, a reference to the nearby Horn Silver Mine. This sign may have been built then or earlier and then adapted. [map]

The Hotel Milford was built in 1913. The sign resting on the canopy is probably from the 1940s or 1950s. The other sign appears to be later. [map]

These Norge Appliances signs were mass-produced. However, this is the only one that I know of that is still on public display. There must have been an appliances store in the space below. The sign appears to be from the 1950s. [map]

Apache Motel
Moab, UT
Silver Spur Motel
Moab, UT
Prospector Lodge
Moab, UT
The Apache Motel sign is probably from the 1950s. The sign was originally painted blue and had neon. For more, see this website. [map]

The Silver Spur Motel and the Prospector Lodge signs are part of an eclectic collection at the Hole 'N The Rock tourist attraction. The Silver Spur Motel sign was originally located in Durango, CO.

The Post Bar & Grille
Morgan, UT
Thunderbird Restaurant
Mount Carmel Junction, UT
Golden Hills Motel
Mount Carmel Junction, UT
The Post Bar & Grille was established in 1963. This sign could be a replica of the original sign or just a modern retro-style sign. If it was based on a vintage sign, the backlit plastic letters were probably neon originally. [map]

The Thunderbird Restaurant was built in 1940. There was a different pole sign there originally. This sign appears to be from the 1950s. The neon thunderbird was apparently modeled after the Thunderbird Hotel sign in Las Vegas. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

The Golden Hills Motel sign is probably from the 1950s. [map]

Murray, UT
La Femme Beauty Salon

Day Murray Music opened here in 1946. This sign may be from then. [map]

The La Femme Beauty Salon is long gone. Hair Studio 48 occupies the space below now. This sign is probably from the 1950s. It was removed in 2019. It's not yet known if it is being restored and will return or whether it will remain in a private collection. [map]
