    Going through Vernon’s Brockville directories, the Modern Motor Motel had a short life. It opened around 1964 and closed around 1972. Early years it was owned by Case & Paula Schaasberg, later years owned by John & Waltraud Fahrngruber. By 1973, it was the County Manor Apartments. A person who worked there talked about a fire in the early 1970s, so I am assuming this is the point when the motel closed. The building looks pretty much the same now, except for the roof and some windows smaller, so I assume the building was fixed up after the fire. The actual sign post is still there, only shorter with no signage on it.

    Current Building on Google Maps:,-75.6611516,3a,48.9y,158.73h,91.64t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s7FpqgWyrQfpTt8RPCwc8Tg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192
