Mirage Motel:  1952-1988

AKA; Glass Pool Inn: 1988-2003 

Demolished 2004


In 1955 the Mirage Motel pool was built in order to stand out and possibly draw passing motorists to the motel. The pool was 26 ft. wide, 55 ft. long and 9 feet deep.  It held 54,000 gal. of shimmering blue water which gleamed with a fluid and tempting light… A wondrous oasis that enticed hot, tired travelers through seven, four foot wide portholes. A fantastic site after a long day of driving through the blistering heat of the Mojave Desert. The pool did exactly what it was supposed to do and in the process became an american icon.
