Description:
Traveling along Route 66 is a wonderful experience; our goal is to capture what makes it special. One of the great features of driving the Route is seeing period Americana (American culture), items from the 1920s thru 1980s. Also along the path are things that are distinctive and can't be seen anywhere else or are of significant interest and worthy of being called out. Lastly there are important markers along the path of Route 66 that should be seen. Done right, you'll experience Route 66 here!!

What Route 66 had brought in the 1930's, it could also take away. By 1956, traffic on 10th Street was so congested that the Mother Road was realigned. The new alignment bypassed the vintage 'Y' Service Station & Café, resulting in its closure.
