Former 417 Rentals Property Set for Demolition, Renters Forced Out


SPRINGFIELD, Mo.– Tenants of the Wishing Well Motel could soon be out on the street.  

The property, once owned by Chris Gatley’s 417 Rentals, was one of many to recently be foreclosed.  

While the Wishing Well was one of the properties to find new ownership, those new owners deemed the building unsalvageable.   

The Wishing Well is set to be demolished soon, meaning tenants will need to find somewhere to go before then.  

“They’re going to make us all leave by [May] first. I don’t know where I’m going to go,” one Wishing Well renter told Ozarks First’s Nyzah McDonald. 

“Probably never should’ve rented from him in the first place,” he added. “It was a roof over my head. So I don’t have any really bad regrets. But I do have regrets about Chris Gatley.”
