The Silver Fountain Inn is located in Branson, MO. If you've never heard of or been to Branson, its kind of like a Midwest Las Vegas, but without the gambling. To be honest, Branson is my kind of town (in the same way Vegas is). It's just this giant, kitschy, overdeveloped place, full of larger than life entertainment options at every corner! And it is exactly the kind of place I like to photograph! So we pulled over to take a picture of the Inns sign, and its weird because the hotel is kind of set back… and there it was in all its abandoned glory! I couldn't believe it! I had left my Mom and Girlfriend in the hot car, so I had to be quick. I'm not sure when this place closed exactly.. the last mention I can find online is 2002. I took these photos on 6/5/10 (my Bday!). As of today, it still shows on Google maps, which kind of surprised me, but I'm sure they will tear this one down soon.
