Giant Buffalo Skull Doorway
In 1982 Vic Lemon created a painted fiberglass buffalo skull, about 15 feet tall, to fit over the entrance of his building on US Highway 26. Dark horns curved upward out of the skull (They were shed in later years). The business, when we first saw it in 1985, featured a "home cookin'" cafe, car wash, and laundromat: the appetizing sounding "Grub 'n' Tub." Customers entered through the skull's nasal passages.
As if that wasn't enough to attract hungry patrons with the week's dirty load, a large moose statue stood in the parking lot.
Today the business is a car wash and laundromat, with its own cherished (and recently refurbished) Laundro-Mat sign. The moose is MIA, but the buffalo skull remains -- with smaller, more buffalo-correct, horns.
