Sundown Motor Court, Spearfish, South Dakota

This illustration shows an idealized view of the motel known as the Sundown Motor Court in Spearfish, South Dakota.

Pub. by the Vernon Co., Newton, Iowa

The description states:


All new modern cabins – Some with cooking facilities – 26 units in all. Open year round. On highway 14 & 85 in Spearfish, South Dakota. Phone 28

–As one might imagine, a two digit phone number is indicative of a very small town with limited phone service at the time of this postcard. The city of Spearfish is located near the head of Spearfish Canyon, at the northern edge of the Black Hills National Forest.

This card was used and is dated 23 June 1954.
