1000 Rooms (Motel Row)

This welcome sign greets visitors exiting I-80 at Jefferson Boulevard. In the 1940's and 50's West Capitol Avenue was a popular place for the politicians from across the river to hang out. There was also a small airport behind the Capitol Inn called Capitol Sky Park. It was rumored to be the busiest private airport in the country in the 1950s. Photo by Barbara Smith
