News From Along Route 66-- July 2015: Haunted House, Circle Inn

Taken from Route 66 News Site.  This site has many more articles and information about the fabled highway.  Well worth a look.

JULY 7TH--  The Oklahoma City Haunted House Restaurant reopened over the July 4th weekend.  In April it was sold at auction for $216,600.  It is now called J. Bruner's at the Haunted House.

It is located on a dead end road near a former Route 66 alignment from the 1950s-1960s.  The 1935 house gets its name from three deaths that took place in it.  The original restaurant opened in 1964.

Sounds like an interesting place to dine as long as you can keep the spirits down.

JULY 7TH--  The Joplin, Missouri, city council has ok'd an architectural study on the old gas station.  A photo shows the place is in really bad shape.  Let's hope it gets restored.

JULY 8TH--  The Circle Inn Malt Shop in Bourbon, Missouri celebrated its 60th anniversary after opening in 1955 by Bud and Marie Ware.  It has stayed in the family and is now owned by third generation Joshua Ware.

We stopped there for a great lunch once.  Always like their sign with the N inside the circle.

--Happy Birthday Circle Inn.  --RoadDog
