DeCamp Junction, near Staunton, Illinois, will be auctioned off on December 3 because its owners are retiring.
It is on the original 1926-1932 alignment of Route 66 and at one time was a bigger complex with tourist cabins, bar, dance hall, gambling and a brothel. The bar is the only building remaining.
It was once called Riddel Store and later Duda's Tavern.
This is a place I've always wanted to visit, but it was always closed when I drove by and had the time or open when I didn't. Looks like that chance is now gone.
