Article: New Homes Sought For Rapid City’s Neon Signs

While going through some articles this afternoon, I stumbled across this article from the May 10th edition of the Rapid City Journal about one man’s quest to save and find new homes for Rapid City, SD’s disused neon signs of businesses past. Like many other cities around the world, Rapid City is another city that is beginning to recognize the historical value of its signage and struggling to save, repair, and find new homes for some of those disused signs from the 1940s-1960s.

This article makes a good point about these signs not only being pieces of vintage Americana, but also works of art which were often designed and handmade by master neon artists many decades ago.

Anyway, here’s the link to the article:
