THIS IS HEADED SOUTH FROM THE CARP ELGIN INTERSECTION.....THIS DEAD ENDS IN ABOUT FIVE MILES
HERE ARE THE RUINS OF WHAT I BELIEVE TO BE A DINNER AND A MOTOR COURT. I FOUND PIECES OF
FINE CHINA THAT WOULD OF SUGGESTED A UPPER SCALE RESTUARANT. THE BUILDING ITSELF WAS NOT MADE OF LOCAL MATERIALS
LIKE SO MANY OF THE OTHER RUINS OF THIS REGION.....THERE ARE TRACES OF SIMON BRICKS, PORCELINE TILES. MUST OF BEEN A NICE PLACE BACK IN THE 30'S AND 40'S.......PARANORMALS BEWARE!!! THIS IS A HOT SPOT
