The Boots Court, Carthage’s iconic motel built in 1939 along the famed Route 66, is being lovingly restored by the nonprofit Boots Court Foundation for travelers & community to again enjoy. Work underway includes addressing rotted floors & walls, roof repair, solving water issues inside & outside the motel, replacing heating/AC units, repairing original bathroom tile, fixing exterior stucco & tile, replacing missing & rotted windows & more – whew, what a huge & exciting undertaking! Once completed, The Boots will be the second oldest operating motel on the Route, offering all 13 rooms with the historic feel & experience of the original Boots Court.
