Arizona Gives Day Tuesday April 4th Historic Neon Sign Restoration Project
Before the interstate made Casa Grande a convenient stop for gas and fast food, motor lodges dotted the landscape along the well-traveled Highway 84 to Tucson. Neon signs at the Sunset Court and Horse Shoe Motel served as beacons in the desert, guiding weary travelers to a place to rest for the night.
Unfortunately, these historic rest stops fell into disrepair or were demolished, but not before the original neon signs were rescued from a trip to the landfill. Stored away for safekeeping, they remain dusty remnants of a bygone era, waiting in the darkness to shine once again.
Casa Grande Main Street and the Casa Grande Historic Preservation Commission have teamed up for Arizona Gives Day, April 4th, 2017. Our target is $10,000 in pledges, which will serve as a catalyst for acquiring matching funds and grants. Join us in fulfilling our ultimate goal: creating a public art space where our community may enjoy these and other icons for generations to come.
