The Society for Commercial Archeology has named two Mesa sites to its 10 most endangered roadside places list. The Buckhorn Baths came in fourth on the list and The Diving Lady came in fifth.

“The list showcases the diversity of roadside places and highlights the issues and challenges facing the preservation of these important resources,” the society states in a press release.

The Diving Lady, a 78-foot-tall neon sign that features three stages of a lady in a springboard dive that was in front of the Starlite Motel for 50 years, came crashing down during a heavy thunderstorm in October. The society is making a $250 contribution to help the sign’s restoration.

The Society for Commercial Archeology was established as part of the Falling by the Wayside program in 2010 to raise awareness of the importance of roadside places throughout the United States.
