Modern Snapshot: Arlington’s Highlander Motor Inn

With Wall Street’s wild ride the past few weeks, I thought the vintage neon sign at the Highlander Motor Inn advertising “MODERATE RATES” was a needed look back at the optomistic and heady days of post-World War II America. This MCM motel, with flat roof, mix of stone and brick and large plate glass windows on each room, is located here on Wilson Boulevard.
