Other than the small part of it southwest of Chicago, there's virtually nothing left of it, even in Texas. N.M. and Arizona. I was stationed in Amarillo, Tx., during the mid-60s and the base's main gate was on 66. The base is gone now and so is 66. The freeway into Amarillo approximates the old route. The part through Lichfield is probably safe from further highway rerouting.

Jan, I think that Route 66 is piecemealed. The interstates have replaced much of it. I don't know how much is left, but it runs through the full length of my town. I work on Old Route 66 North.
PG, I will do my best!

I like it, laura!

By the way, they made the building look retro in its design.

Thanks, chickie. I haven't been in it yet. The city administrator, Andy Ritchie (a friend), rode his bike last May from LA to Chicago to raise money for this museum. It took him 5 weeks.
Yes, Pat, I certainly will get some photos, once i can get inside.

Directly across the street is the Ariston Cafe, an old Route 66 landmark, built in 1935. In fact, the Ariston is the longest operating restaurant along the entire stretch of Route 66.

That would be interesting to go to. Looks like it's about done.
