Nostalgic Neon Signs
In decades past, neon signs glowed bright in Downtown Harlingen, beckoning residents and visitors into modern groceries and department stores, corner drug stores and diners, movie palaces, and grand hotels.
Today, Downtown Harlingen is honored to showcase dozens of neon signs. Several are vintage neon, restored to their former splendor, while others are contemporary creations. Most of the nostalgic collection is displayed indoors. A few historic signs remain in their original outdoor locations.
