Benson's Tourist City
St. Clair

Mr. and Mrs. Lewis J. Benson opened their Tourist City in 1937. It included a 24-hour café, gas station, and 16 "all approved AAA cabins". The complex became the McGinnis Show Me Courts when Mr. and Mrs. R.E. McGinnis took over. It also was later know as the Del Crest. Part of the complex still stands.
