Missouri's Route 66-- Part 3

Not far from Cuba is Fanning's U.S. 66 Outpost general Store which features the world's largest rocking chair, clocking in at 42-feet 1 inch.

ROLLA--  The Totem Pole Trading Post at 1413 Martin Springs Drive, old Route 66, claims to be the oldest business on Route 66 that is still operating.  A classic tourist trap if there ever was one.  Then there is that huge sign.

DEVIL'S BEND--  The Elbow Inn & BBQ is a classic bikers' bar on a bypassed section of Route 66 by Hooker Cut.  This stretch of 66 is my favorite drive on all of Route 66.

LEBANON--  The local K-Mart has been converted into the town library and the Route 66 Museum and Research Center at 915 S. Jefferson Avenue.  They have 2,000 to 3,000 visitors a month during the tourist season.  Then, of course, there is the Munger-Moss Motel.  A real classic.
