Saturday, April 29, 2017, will be quite the day in Lincoln, Illinois, as it will mark the opening of the Mill after many years of work and effort by many groups.
I remember seeing it on our first Route 66 trip back in 2002 and being sad that it had fallen upon such hard times. I mean, it was looking bad. Then it continued to get worse.
But finally, the city realized what an excellent piece of history they had and it has since been restored and will open as a museum.
Wish we could be there, but we are planning on doing the Red Carpet Corridor weekend May 6-7 and will probably get to Lincoln to check it out on our way to Springfield.
