Travel Route 66 - America's Highway

History of Main Street America

1926

US Route 66 (Will Rogers Memorial Highway) existed from November 26, 1926 - June 27, 1985.  After it was officially removed from the US Highway System on June 27, 1985 when it was replaced by the Interstate Highway System, various states designated portions of the original road as a National Scenic Byway known as "Historic Route 66".

Route 66 was the 20th century version of the golden road to the Promise Land. It wove hundreds of miles through the Midwest (Illinois, Missouri, Kansas) and across Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona before reaching California and the Pacific Coast.  Those adventurous souls who migrated west looking for employment and a better life were the support system that kept the businesses in the communities along the way thriving and prosperous.  Route 66 well deserves the name "The Mother Road" with its nurturing effect on both the travelers and the business owners who experienced its glory over the years, both then and now.
