Colonel Harland David Sanders was born September 9, 1890. On this cover of Kentucky Fried Chicken’s in-house magazine, he was celebrating his 80th birthday (and would still see ten more).
Although now minus the pool, this motel still sits along the alignment of old U.S. Route 66. In addition to probably starting out as a Hyatt Chalet Lodge and later dropping the Hyatt, this location later became the Needles Inn. In more recent years, it has become a Knights Inn which is part of the Wyndham Hotel Group.
