The Downtowner Motel, along a more-obscure alignment of Route 66 in downtown Pontiac, Ill., was torn down Wednesday to make way for new Law and Justice Center, reported the Pontiac Daily Leader.
More pictures of the demolition can be seen here, at The Community Times.
The Downtowner had been for sale for several years, including a listing on Route 66 News. But apparently there were no takers.
