Hugo Liquors Neon Sign

Beautiful historic neon sign located in the middle of nowhere on Hwy 287. This is the last and oldest neon sign driving east on this highway in Colorado.

The entire neon display, including the jug, lettering, and roofline wraparound, was restored in 2017. It was originally installed in 1954.
