Adobe Village402 N. J.M. Davis Blvd, Claremore, OK
The Adobe Village occupies the former El Sueno Motor Court. Harold (Jack) and Christing Sibley opened this motor court in 1938. It was the first motel on Route 66 and the Ozark Trail in Claremore. Nine cottages held a total of 18 guest units. The two story building in the center held the office on the first floor and the owners quarters on the second floor. That center building also used to be connected by a wall between itself and the two cottages fronting the street.
The individual cottages appear to have been converted from two units each to a single unit in each. The two story building in the back of the complex appears to house several more units. An early image seems to look like there may have been garages where that building stands today. The entire complex has been converted to long term rental apartments.
Several windows and doors on the cottages and main building have been infilled and stuccoed over.
The reference to nearby bath houses makes me wonder if the motel had
no bath or shower facilities when it was built.
