Riverview Inn

Colonial Beach, Virginia 

The Riverview Inn was built in 1949 and evokes the "modern" architecture of the 1950s. Line the street with  period automobiles and you have a 1950s movie set.

The sign may not be original. Earlier photos show the hotel operating under a different name with a much smaller and less decorative square sign. The current sign seems quite appropriate for the building; perhaps a little too tall, but nicely reminiscent of the era.
