1 EXPLORE THE HIGHWAY, WITH HAMPTON HOTELS SAVE-A- LANDMARK PROGRAM OVERVIEW In April 2000, Hampton Hotels launched Save-A-Landmark, a campaign dedicated to refurbishing historical, fun and cultural landmarks that reside along North America s highways. Landmark refurbishments include painting, cleaning, replacing siding and doors, and landscaping, as well as other preservation and beautification efforts Hampton hotel volunteers can support. The program has provided hundreds of hours and more than $2.5 million toward the research, attention and preservation of America s roadside landmarks for future generations. According to a 2003 Travel Industry Association (TIA) study, there is continuing interest in travelers' desire to experience cultural, arts, historic and heritage activities. More than 80 percent of U.S. adults who traveled in the past year, or 118 million, are considered historic/cultural travelers. AWARD-WINNING PROGRAM In April 2010, Hampton Hotels Save-A-Landmark program was honored with the Communitas Award in Hotel Chain category recognizing Hampton s contributions through the program and how it benefits the community. On July 25, 2009, Hampton Hotels Save-A-Landmark program was presented with the 2009 George Palmer Putnam Award by the Ninety-Nine s Inc. The award was in recognition of the program s refurbishment of the Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum in Atchison, Kansas, completed on July 24, The Ninety-Nines are an association of female pilots, of which Amelia Earhart served as their first president.

Nearly 500 shoes were collected at the event. 14

15 WORLD S LARGEST CUCKOO CLOCK (Wilmot, Ohio) Standing more than 23 feet tall, the Cuckoo Clock was built in the late 1960s to attract customers to the neighboring restaurant, now named Grandma s Alpine Homestead Swiss Village. Visitors can view this colossal clock for free, as well as its singing, dancing figurines that put on a show every hour on the hour. For years this landmark was perched atop a staircase, making it Inaccessible to many elderly and handicapped visitors. However, on August 16, 2007, Save-A-Landmark program volunteers joined forces to complete an extensive renovation of the clock. The project included a $20,000 grant, enabling it to be moved to ground level and making it accessible and enjoyable for all visitors. In addition to facilitating the move, Save-A-Landmark volunteers worked for an estimated 80 hours to restore the Cuckoo Clock after years of exposure to harsh climate conditions. The volunteers varnished and stained the wooden structure, replaced and grouted the stonework and oiled the intricate crown moldings. They also completed a new pond in the wooden landscape, repainted the water wheel and painted and varnished the animated singing and dancing figurines the stars of the landmark s hourly performances. WORLD S LARGEST BUFFALO (Jamestown, North Dakota) Weighing in at 60 tons, the World s Largest Buffalo is 26 feet tall, 46 feet long and cost nearly $8,500 to build in The colossal beast was created to give passersby a reason to stop in Jamestown, but it's not the only curious attraction the city offers it visitors. The Buffalo stands over the National Buffalo Museum, where a collection of art and artifacts portray the cultural and natural history of bison and the Great Plains; and Frontier Village, a western town that features an active trading post, saloon, souvenir shop, sheriff s office, jail and more (open to the public from Memorial Day to Labor Day). In addition, Frontier Village is the home to North America s only female albino buffalo named White Cloud. On June 19-20, 2007, nearly 15 Save-A-Landmark program volunteers worked closely with the Buffalo s original artist and sculptor, Elmer P. Petersen, to refurbish this giant. Volunteers scaled ladders and balanced high on a mechanical lift to refresh and make cosmetic changes to the 26-foot-tall beast donating an estimated 100 hours of man-power. The Buffalo s mane was enhanced, its horns were lengthened and its paint job was upgraded incorporating shading techniques and giving texture to the Buffalo s furry coat. As part of the restoration, Hampton contributed more than $16,000 to the Buffalo s ongoing care, ensuring that future generations of visitors will have the chance to stand in the shadow of this gigantic piece of Americana. 15

16 WORLD S LARGEST TEAPOT (Chester, West Virginia) In 1938, William Babe Devon transported a colossal root beer barrel from Pennsylvania to Chester, West Virginia. When he added a lid, spout and handle, the World s Largest Teapot was born. Standing in front of Devon s pottery store, the Teapot lured travelers off the road and into a concession and souvenir stand. In subsequent years, it was bought and sold several times, painted and repainted, used to sell lawn garden items and novelty gifts, and was finally closed and abandoned in In 1984, the whimsical landmark was in danger of demolishment, but it had won the hearts of the citizens of Chester. By 1987, Chester s cherished landmark was donated to the city and moved to its present location. Town residents took action to restore the Teapot, with extensive repairs completed in On May 23, 2007, nearly 20 years since the Teapot received any sugar, Save-A-Landmark program volunteers had their work cut out for them. They tore-off and replaced the Teapot s worn-out roof and then cleaned, scraped and sanded the surface of the Teapot before meticulously applying gallons of fresh paint. Hampton s restoration of the World s Largest Teapot is a testament to the citizens of Chester whose efforts maintained the Teapot for nearly 70 years. A donation of more than $15,000 from Hampton Hotels will enable the citizens of Chester to continue caring for the Teapot for years to come, and ensure that future generations of visitors will experience this unique treasure. PARQUE ZOOLOGICO, LA PASTORA (Monterrey, Mexico) Home to over 300 animals, Parque Zoologico, La Pastora is the largest zoo in the north of Mexico, and is surrounded by a vast expanse of natural terrain. It s a must see when visiting the city of Monterrey. The zoo is dedicated to not only educate visitors about a wide variety of animals, but also to create a special area for the preservation of endangered species. In June 2006, Parque Zoologico welcomed the birth of the first African Elephant born in captivity in Mexico. On December 5, 2006, more than 100 people from the Monterrey-area came together in the spirit of International Volunteer Day (45 volunteers were from Hampton Hotels, another 65 were government employees). Their task was to preserve and enhance the condition of the zoo for the benefit of future visitors as well as the animals who call the zoo home. Hampton Inn volunteers spent hours applying fresh coats of paint to several buildings, planting fresh landscaping throughout the park, polishing the zoo s giant statues until they shone like new and restoring the zoo s central fountain. To provide for the continued upkeep of the zoo, Hampton topped-off the effort with a $40,000 contribution. 16

17 U.S.S. LAFFEY DESTROYER, PATRIOTS POINT (Charleston, South Carolina) Korean War service. The U.S.S. Laffey Destroyer is the only preserved Allen M. Sumner class destroyer, as well as the only surviving U.S. World War II destroyer that saw action in the Atlantic where it acted as an escort for convoys to Great Britain. The destroyer helped bombard Utah Beach at Normandy in the D-Day landing on June 6, 1944 during World War II. Sent into the Pacific, Laffey was involved in one of the most famous destroyer-kamikaze duels in the war the Battle of Iwo Jima. Hit several times, racked by explosions and fires, Laffey remained afloat because of the valiant efforts of her crew. Laffey earned five battle stars and a Presidential Unit Citation for her World War II service and two battle stars for her An American legend and larger-than-life relic of our nation s wartime history, the U.S.S. Laffey is known as the ship that wouldn t die. Today, the U.S.S. Laffey is recognized as a National Historic Landmark and remains honored at Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum, one of the world s largest museums commemorating World War II. On November 7-8, 2006, more than 25 Hampton employee-volunteers from the Charleston area worked together to help clean, scrape, sand and paint the Laffey. The volunteers commitment paid off so much so that the Museum was able to finish a new museum exhibit within the Laffey to showcase WWII era artifacts. Hampton also contributed nearly $2,000 to help preserve the articles, ensuring that future generations can learn from the legacies and sacrifices of all American service men and women. ELEUTHERIAN COLLEGE (Madison, Indiana) As the first college in Indiana and one of the first in pre-civil War America to admit students regardless of race or gender, Eleutherian College is considered one of America s Most Endangered Historic Places and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Founded in 1848, the school enjoyed its heyday in the late 1850s, drawing Caucasian and African- American students from as far away as Mississippi and Louisiana to take advantage of the chance to learn in an integrated setting. The local monument, dedicated to education and equality, also served as a station on the Underground Railroad system. Battered but still proud, the structure was in desperate need of Hampton s assistance showing the effects of prolonged neglect and vandalism. On June 27, 2006, 15 volunteers from Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky worked together to refurbish the historic landmark and preserve its rich history. Hampton Inn volunteers helped brighten the campus main building, the Lyman Hoyt House and accompanying visitor centers with gallons of paint, tons of cleaning supplies and new indigenous landscaping. After a long day of hard work and fun in the sun, Hampton s Save-A-Landmark program contributed an estimated 160 hours of manpower and more than $10,000 toward helping Eleutherian College educate individuals on its poignant role in American history once again. 17

18 CAROUSEL GARDENS, CITY PARK (New Orleans, Louisiana) Known as the beloved Crown Jewel of New Orleans, this 1,500 acre park in the heart of the city has been delighting locals and travelers alike with everything from mini-train rides to whirls on its famed antique carousel for 100 years. The popular carousel is one of only 100 antique wooden carousels in the entire country and is the last one in Louisiana. For this, it has garnered national attention and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. On April 25, 2006, 20 volunteers from Louisiana worked together to refurbish the antique landmark to prepare the carousel for its next 100 years and to help the clean-up effort after Hurricane Katrina - what is now recognized as one of the busiest hurricane season in history. The carousel itself and surrounding landscape sat in several feet of water for six weeks following the hurricane, resulting in a myriad of needs including everything from replacing ruined platforms and roofs to pulling out the dead foliage and planting all new landscaping. To restore the park back to its pre-hurricane state, Hampton Inn volunteers provide the manpower and the resources to breathe new life into this landmark, helping to ensure it will be enjoyed for many generations to come. With rolled up sleeves and a lot of supplies, volunteers cleaned, painted, planted, polished and fixed until the landmark was once again the sparking jewel of the city. JESSE OWENS MEMORIAL PARK (Oakville, Alabama) Running 100 meters in 10.3 seconds and jumping more than 26 feet in a single bound all in the quest for gold. These Superman-like acts are human feats accomplished nearly 70 years ago by Jesse Owens the first American to win four gold medals in track and field during an Olympic Games. Perhaps even more impressive is the adversity he overcame. Jesse Owens faced incredible discrimination as he entered the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin. Overcoming all odds, he went on to set unprecedented Olympic records. By the end of the Games, the entire world cheered for Jesse Owens of the USA. Today, the Jesse Owens Memorial Park in Oakville, Alabama honors and exudes the athletic achievements of one of the best remembered athletes in Olympic history, providing recreational and sporting opportunities for future generations. The Jesse Owens Memorial Park includes a life-sized bronze statue of the famous athlete and Olympic rings, a 1936 Olympic torch replica and a replica of Owens childhood home. On Oct. 26 and 27, 2005, 20 volunteers from Alabama teamed up to restore this Olympic landmark. In honor of the Hilton Family of Hotels U.S. Olympic Team sponsorship, volunteers from Hampton Hotels Save-A-Landmark program instilled some sportsman-like spirit back into the historic memorial by shining the statue of Olympian Jesse Owens, cleaning the Olympic torch replica, painting the visitors center and landscaping the 20-acre site. Altogether, Hampton contributed nearly 100 hours of manpower and more than $38,000 toward reviving this landmark. 18

19 THE ENCHANTED FOREST (Ellicott City, Maryland) Jack and the Beanstalk, The Old Lady s Shoe, Cinderella s Pumpkin Coach and dozens of other storybook figurines have one thing in common they call The Enchanted Forest at Clark s Elioak Farm in Ellicott City home. Delighting parents and children alike, The Enchanted Forest first opened in 1955 as a storybook park featuring larger-than-life fairytale figures. It s recognized as the East Coast s first theme park and credited as the third oldest U.S. theme park. This homage to tall tales developed quite a tall list of refurbishment needs over the years, forcing the forest to close for many years. Today, the owner of Clark's Elioak Farm has been relocating and restoring the oversized figurines treasure by treasure to her 540-acre farm to ensure generations to come will be able to enjoy their stories. These efforts are beginning to give The Enchanted Forest a new lease on life. On Aug. 9 and 10, 2005, just days away from its 50 th birthday celebration, nearly 40 local Hampton Inn volunteers rolled up their sleeves to give the landmark a fairytale ending, making it the program s 24 th successful restoration. With their magic wands and sprinkles of fairy dust as well as gallons of paint, tons of cleaning supplies, new landscaping and a lot of handiwork volunteers worked their charms on the storybook figures so that they can all live happily ever after. Collectively, 200 volunteer-hours and more than $30,000 were invested into the time-honored treasures. The Enchanted Forest s magical makeover ensures it will be enjoyed by many generations to come. ADMIRAL TWIN DRIVE-IN (Tulsa, Oklahoma) The Admiral Twin Drive-In theater epitomizes the nostalgic drive-ins of yesteryear so much so that it was featured in Frances Ford Coppola s 1983 film The Outsiders as the ultimate 1950 s hangout. Originally opened as a single screen in 1951 called the Modernaire, the owners soon saw a need for a second screen which they added to the back of the screen and renamed in Located on historic Route 66, the Admiral Twin is one of only eight drive-ins remaining in Oklahoma and the state s largest drive-in with a capacity for more than 1,200 cars. America voted Tulsa s most famous landmark as the lucky recipient of a $20,000 award from Hampton during a two-month online voting campaign. These funds came from Hampton winning the prestigious SMITHSONIAN Magazine/Travelers Conservation Foundation Sustainable Tourism Award. On May 24, 2005, in time for the summer blockbuster movie season, Save- A-Landmark celebrated its 23rd restoration effort when more than 15 local Hampton Inn volunteers banded together to create movie magic on this all- American site. With more than 50 gallons of paint and speedy handiwork, they helped the site say Action! by painting radio boxes, the sides of the 80-feet tall screen; updating the marquee signs, ticket booth and concession stand; and landscaping the 38-acre site, allowing future generations to enjoy the drive-in experience. They contributed nearly 100 hours of manpower and more than $35,000 toward tuning up this all-american landmark. 19

20 HOGBACK BRIDGE (Winterset, Iowa) A famous site in America s literary and architectural history, Hogback Bridge is one of the Bridges of Madison County made famous by Robert Waller s best-selling book and the awardwinning film of the same name. The Bridge was built in 1884 by Benton Jones and still stands in its original location in a valley north of Winterset, Iowa. Spanning 97 feet long and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Hogback is one of the five remaining bridges of the 19 structures originally built in the late 1800s. The bridge was renovated in 1992, but was marred by an arson attempt ten years later. On Wednesday, May 4, 2005, Save-A-Landmark celebrated its 22nd restoration effort with more than 20 Hampton Inn volunteers from Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and Ames, Iowa. They banded together to brighten the bridge s weathered wood frame and railings with gallons of paint, tons of cleaning supplies, new landscaping and a lot of handy work. They contributed nearly 120 hours of manpower toward helping Hogback Bridge return to its original state. The Save-A-Landmark program also donated more than $10,000, a portion of which will go toward security efforts in light of the previous arson attempts, to give Hogback s preserved look staying power. THE GINGERBREAD CASTLE (Hamburg, New Jersey) Recognized as Hamburg s most famous landmark and one of America s first theme parks the Gingerbread Castle is a larger than life fairy-tale shrine inspired by the Brothers Grimm s classic story Hansel and Gretel. It was built in 1930 by F.H. Bennett in conjunction with the famous set designer and architect Joe Urban, who created the whimsical gingerbread walls, candy cane towers, cake icing turrets and frosted sugar roof. Back then, 25 cents was all visitors needed to take a guided tour through the Gingerbread Castle and its character statues. New owner Frank Hinger bought the Castle in 2003 with the dream of restoring the building to its original glory and re-opening it to travelers worldwide. On Monday, July 19, and Tuesday, July 20, 2004, more than 40 Hampton Inn volunteers joined forces to help bring back the mythical retreat for children by refurbishing this one-of-a-kind site. With a little help from the imagination, Hampton employee volunteers cut, sawed and raked away the vines and brush that had overtaken the site, power-washed the grime from its frosted walls, and repainted its side towers and fairytale characters in a two-day project to kick off its full-restoration. In addition, the Save-A-Landmark program contributed more than $25,000 toward helping put the Gingerbread Castle and characters like Humpty Dumpty, back together again. Refurbishment Update: Since the refurbishment of Hamburg s well-known Gingerbread Castle in July 2004, the whimsical landmark was the victim of more than $10,000 in damage from vandals likely unaware of its heritage and the recent efforts to preserve it. On October 27, 2004 Hampton Inn came to the rescue and donated an additional $5,000 to restore their hard work and preserve the site from any future vandalism. As a result of Hampton s generosity, an alarm system and secure fence were installed to ensure Humpty Dumpty and his Gingerbread Castle live happily ever after. 20
