However, a few weeks ago I was heading out to Rural King via Old Route 20, and looked up and realized I was staring at the motel on the vintage postcard. After a quick turnaround, and a couple of drive-bys, I had my shot.
How long has Elyria Motel been out there? It first appeared in the Elyria City Directory in the 1959 edition, making it roughly as old as me. But it looks to be in pretty good shape.
Here’s my drive-by shot.
