mineral wells tourist court Hwy 281

We recently stumbled across this cool looking building on highway 281 just south of Mineral Wells. It had the typical signs of being a motor court due to the arched entry way and multiple smaller buildings.

Some research revealed that this building was an old motor court and grocery store built in 1940, according to descriptions on a few real estate websites. Also according to the real estate description is called the Castle Rock Home.
