All the way from New Jersey -- via Clinton, BC -- two enormous and magnificent cast iron lion statues have come to rest at the entrance to the Super 8 Motel in Williams Lake.
"I saw them about three days after they arrived at the Clinton Emporium," said Super 8 owner Scott Nelson. "They were purchased at an estate sale in New Jersey and shipped to Clinton." Nelson explained that he made the store owner an offer, and after a short bargaining process, took ownership of the leonine pair. "I thought they'd be both a great attraction, and a nice entrance to the best place in the world." The Super 8 Motel is located on Broadway Avenue, visible from Highway 97 at the south end of Williams Lake, so people will see them whether they're coming or going.
