News From Along Route 66, September 2016: Of Sinkholes and Mills

SEPTEMBER 10--  A massive sinkhole near Route 66 in Pacific, Missouri.   It was a real big one measuring 50 by 70=-feet and deep enough to swallow a two-story building.  It was caused by the collapse of a sewer pipe.

Watch Your Step!!

SEPTEMBER 12--  The Mill in Lincoln, Illinois, is likely to open as a museum by April 2017.  This is thanks in large to the $10,720 cost-share grant from the Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program.  The Mill will also have stuff from the old Pig Hip restaurant.

The first time we saw the Mill in Lincoln, i was sure it wasn't long for this world, but here it is, looking about as good as it did back in its heyday.  The people of Lincoln and Route 66 folks are to be commended.

Go, Mill!!  --RoadDog
