Vandenberg Village's upcoming boutique resort was buzzing with excitement on Wednesday afternoon as construction crews hoisted a 1,000-pound "Village Inn" sign onto a 34-foot steel "V" located at the frontside off historic hotel property which is slated to open in June.

The sign, a replica of its midcentury modern predecessor, is reminiscent of the 1950-60s architectural design style which evolved from the post-World War II era: sleek lines, functional and simplistic in composition.
