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.

Hotel Horn Silver
Milford, UT
Hotel Milford
Milford, UT
Norge Appliances [gone]
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 was the last one that I know of that was still on public display. There must have previously been an appliances store in the space below. The sign appears to be from the 1950s. It was gone by 2021.

Apache Motel
Moab, UT
The Apache Motel was built in 1954 and the sign on the left was probably built then. It was originally painted blue with more detail and had neon. The directional sign on the right is located on Main St. It might have been built in the 1960s. For more, see this website. [left map]; [right map]

The Silver Spur Motel sign was originally located in Durango, CO. It was there through the 1990s. The Prospector Lodge sign came from Moab. The Westinghouse sign was mass-produced. I don't know where this one came from. The fish and rifle signs from Howard's Sporting Goods are also here now. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4. [map]

The Post Bar & Grille
Morgan, UT
Thunderbird Restaurant
Mount Carmel Junction, UT
Golden Hills Motel

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]
