2612 E. 7th Street, Joplin, MO
The Plaza Motel was built in 1962 at the intersection of 7th St. and Florida
Ave. That put it on the 1956 -1985 alignment of Route 66.
The roof used to continue straight across the driveway making a canopy
for guests checking in or out. Sometime in the past the roof section
was removed, probably to accommodate taller vehicles. The wing on the
right in this photo used have large windows across the entire end of
the building, That obviously was some kind of office or guest services
