With its ceramic and glass brick exterior and late Art
Deco accents, the Coral Court Motel was the quintessential Route 66 motel.
The Coral Court was designed by St. Louis architect, Adolph
L. Struebig, who also designed The South Side Streamline. Construction
was completed in two phases: the first from 1941 to 1942 and the second
from 1946 to 1948.
|Each room featured an attached garage, making the Coral
Court Motel a favorite of Route 66 travelers as well as local lovers looking
for a discrete getaway.
|The Coral Court was listed in the National Register of
Historic Places in 1989. It was closed in 1993 and, despite its historical
significance, was demolished in 1995.
