The Kimball Motel is long gone, but the landmark sign remained near the corner of Highway 55 and County Road 44. After the Watkins Veterinary Clinic merged with the Kimball clinic, Dr. Carl Larson made the sign his "pet" project. He took a poll, and the majority wanted to keep the "Kimball Motel" sign. It was in rough shape, though, so
Dr. Carl took it down to restore it. He painted the sign himself, adding just one little change, and last week (Aug. 2) it was returned to its old posts. Good job, Carl! Staff photo by Jean Doran Matua.
