Going west to east, the seventh Motor Parkway toll collection structure was the Mineola Lodge located off Jericho Turnpike in Mineola. The lodge is documented on VanderbiltCupRaces.com.

On June 21, 1921, William K. Vanderbilt Jr. authorized the building of a toll lodge with living quarters off Jericho Turnpike in Mineola. It was the first  new lodge to be built since the Garden City Lodge in 1911. The Mineola Lodge is one of only five Motor Parkway toll collection structures still partially or completely intact.
