Historic Williams Deluxe Cabins Continue Changing

Driving by the construction site daily, I continue to be intrigued by the changes to the historic site of the Williams Deluxe Cabins on Lincoln Highway outside of Exton, Pennsylvania. Here's an update for the last day of December 2017.

A second duo of cabins is going up at an angle to the first cabin. This site is not one where previous cabins were standing prior to construction. At the time of this writing, the original string of cabins have now been torn down and a concrete foundation is in place for more of these new "cabins," if that is what they are to be. A small service building has also been removed. At this point, the original check in building/gas station combination remains, but for how long remains to be seen.

The cabins that were torn down had been standing empty for many years. I imagine there was next to nothing left to save. Roofs were in disrepair and no doubt much of the interiors had long been exposed to the elements.

Here you can see the service building that was removed and a glimpse
of the original cabins off to the right, now gone.

How this will end, only time will tell. And I'll keep watch if you are curious.
