Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in or just neat postcards

Along the Chapman Highway

A couple of former resting places:
This is, of course, in Seymour TN.  Appears to be a motel from the 50s.
The erstwhile Parkway Hotel, just outside metro Knoxville.  The guy who runs the pawn shop down the way told me that this hotel was a quite nice establishment back in the 50s.  Restaurant, ballroom, strange looking windows, everything.  It’s now apparently derelict.  The “Good Food” sign is from a more recent restaurant.

  1. I saw this building and wanted to know what it was like when it was vacant. Thanks for your post. I want to see if I can find photos of the hotel when it was lively in the 50s.
