The 36 West Motel is No More

Word has come to us today that the 36 West Motel in Cross Plains is no more. The property was bought and the structure has been removed.

Since Howard Days began in 1986, the 36 West was "the" place to stay for Howard Days activities, as it was located next door to the Robert E. Howard house.

In truth, the 36 had seen its better days before the 1990's, but it was always a serviceable place to stay for fans who came to Howard Days. However, the last several years it had  become pretty run-down and fell out of favor with most Howard Days attendees. But there was still that convenience of being right  next door. Sigh.

No plans have been announced as to the future of the property. We certainly could hope for a nice new motel on the spot that would compliment Woody's Car Museum as well as the Howard Museum.

There will be 36 West stories to be told in the Pavilion at Howard Days 2023, coming April 28-29 at the Howard Museum in Cross Plains. Hope you can be there!
