2011 Most-Endangered Roadside Places

The Society for Commercial Architecture has released its list of ten most-endangered places along the nation's roads this year. In other words, you might want to hurry up and get out to see these places. They might soon be gone.

1. Airplane Filling Station-- Knoxville, Tn. (We've been through Knoxville many times, but haven't seen it.)
2. Bartles/Maguire/Washam's Service Station-- Waukesha, Wis. (We've been to Waukesha but never seen it either. Maybe next time.)

3. Boots Motel-- Carthage, Missouri. (We've seen this many times. Even driven behind the front.)
4. Buckhaven Baths-- Mesa, Az.
5. Diving Lady-- Mesa, Az

6. Doo Wop Motels-- Wildwoods, NJ
7. Giant Santa-- Haubstadt, Ind.
8. Premier Lanes Sign-- Santa Fe Springs, Ca.

9. Roundtop Filling Station-- Sherwood, Ark.
10. Wagon Wheel Motel-- Oxnard, Ca. (destroyed)

I'm not sure why they would list the Wagon Wheel if it was already destroyed.

Thanks to Route 66 News blog for alerting me to this list.
