Sturgeon Bay, Wis. (October 6, 2023) – Join DCHS for an unforgettable evening this October as we delve into the fascinating world of 20th-century motels and their pivotal role in shaping American travel culture. Our guest speaker, melaniejane, will lead a captivating discussion on the motel phenomenon, with a special focus on the intriguing history of The Holiday Music Motel within this iconic movement.
From the early days of “Auto Camping” to the neon-donned roadside attractions that beckoned weary travelers, motels have etched their mark on the American landscape. As these nostalgic havens become increasingly rare, The Holiday Music Motel stands as a beacon of preservation, offering an opportunity for today’s generation to step back in time and experience this bygone era firsthand.
Yet, The Holiday is more than just a time capsule; it’s a dynamic force within the community. As we gather to explore the past, we’ll also celebrate The Holiday’s mission to support and uplift the music and art community. Join us for an evening of nostalgia, discovery, and a deep appreciation for the enduring legacy of American motels.
