Benson's Tourist City
West of St. Clair

"Clean, Respectable, Your Home Away From Home." was the motto of Benson't Tourist City. Mr. and Mrs. Lewis J. Benson offered 16 AAA approved cabins. Mr. and Mrs. R.E. McGinnis later operated it as the McGinnis Sho-Me Courts, and it was also known as the Del-Crest. Much of the complex burned, but some of the cabins still stand.
