    Blue Spruce Motel, Murrysville, Pa. demolition

    Just read an article about this motel on Rt.22 in Murrysville being demo'd. Had a public pool from back in the 50's and was built to replace another motel from the 40's.

    Part of the movie "Kingpin" with Woody Harrelson was shot there. They're starting the process now with an interior clean out and demo is set to begin the end of this month. Anything else I dig up, I'll add to the post.

    The original motel in a postcard and an aerial view of the current motel.

    It's a pretty good sized pool and I can see a fence around part of it. The building behind it is the poolhouse and the motel sits back alone. Lots of grassy area.

    I googled and searched for John's motel but came up with nothing and in the old aerial photos from the 30's it wasn't there. But the pool has been there from the 50's through the early part of 2000's. Could be some goodies there if nobodys detected it... Gonna shoot for this weekend if I don't have to work.
