Route 66 in Arizona

Miles: 350 (approx.)

"For centuries, travelers and explorers have been following the 35th parallel through Arizona. From prehistoric trails to Beale’s Wagon  Road, the railroad, the National Old Trails Road, and Route 66, the 35th parallel through Arizona has been a favored route for its mild climate  and relatively level terrain. Passing through numerous tribal  communities and railroad towns, it is also a route of stunning natural  attractions such as the Meteor Crater, Petrified Forest, painted  deserts, pine forests, and the Grand Canyon. Curio shops and exotic  animal farms once flourished along the corridor during the Route 66  years.

Preservation

After the last segment of Route 66 in the nation was bypassed by the  interstate in Williams, Arizona in 1984, a grassroots effort rallied to  form the Arizona Route 66 Association to preserve and commemorate the route. By 1994 Arizona Route 66 was  designated an Arizona Scenic Byway, and by 2009, it became an All American Road.  The Bureau of Land Management also designated the 42-mile section of  Route 66 through their lands between Kingman and Topock as a Backcountry Byway.

The National Park Service Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program has  also worked with more than 20 cost-share grant partners to assist  properties including the Wigwam Motel and Joe and Aggie’s in Holbrook;  the Hualapai Fueling Station in Peach Springs; and the Frontier Motel in  Truxton."  National Park Service

Route 66—Seligman, AZ Commercial Historic District

  •  Photo of the Canyon Lodge in the heart of the Historic District Seligman, Arizona on Route 66 Arizona


 Seligman was on the original U.S. Route 66 from 1926 through 1978, when Interstate 40 bypassed it a few miles south. Seligman experienced its real heyday after World War II, when returning  veterans and other motorists hit the road and made the Southwest a  popular tourist destination. The Seligman Commercial Historic District is roughly bounded by 1st and  Lamport Streets. and Picacho and Railroad Aves. It was added to National  Register of Historic Places on February 1, 2005, reference #04000511.  The Seligman Commercial Historic District protects the historical  central area's early 20th century commercial buildings along Historic Route 66, a revived popular tourist destination. Historic district contributing properties include the Pitts General  Merchandise Store and the U.S. Post Office from 1903, the Pioneer Hall  and Theatre and the Seligman Garage from 1905, and the Seligman Pool  Hall from 1923.


In 1987 Seligman gained its name "Birthplace of Historic Route  66" due to the efforts of Seligman residents, who convinced the State of  Arizona to dedicate Route 66 a historic highway. Seligman is the first stop heading west on the longest uninterrupted  stretch of historic Route 66, running around 160 miles (260 km) to Topock on the east side of the Colorado River. Pictured are some of the contributing structures in the Seligman  Commercial Historic District and the historic Route 66. Also, pictured  are some of the historical structures outside of the Seligman Commercial  Historic District zone, some of which are individually listed in the  National Register of Historic places.
