Glenrock
Independent [gone]
Glenrock, WY
Masonic Lodge
Glenrock, WY
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. It was still there in 2021 but gone in 2022. Only the yellow base remains.

This Masonic Lodge sign has backlit, glass globes. Usually, these signs were built with the globes arranged vertically. These globes are also spherical while normally they are flatter like this. [map]

Million Dollar Cowboy Bar
Jackson, WY
2012: 2022:
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 rooftop sign was installed in 1946. It reads "Cowboy Bar" on one side and "Welcome" on the other. In 2018, both signs were restored by YESCO of Idahoa Falls, ID. The facade sign now how LED bulbs. The paint on the rooftop sign was touched up since its last restoration in 1995. The sign is now revolving as it did originally. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4. [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.
