Abandoned Tourist Cabins, US 17, Darien


Common on all of America’s major highways from the 1930s to the 1960s, “tourist cabins” like these were the forerunners of motels and have largely disappeared from the American landscape today.


These are quite well-preserved and likely among the best examples remaining on the coast.

  1. Oh yes, remember these accommodations so well from my childhood, driving up Highway 17 to visit family friends in Darien.

    Wonder if they are made of concrete blocks?

    At one time years ago some at Darien were owned by Mr Charlie Blount.
