Along 66, June, 2017: "New" Places On 66 Since 2006 "Post-Cars) Era
From the Route 66 News Site.
Route 66 has spawned many new places along its length since 2006, the "Post-Cars" movie era. That movie did a lot to increase knowledge of our old road among the general public. The list covered all states, but I will do just the ones in Illinois, and some of the ones in Missouri.
They include places built-from-scratch like Pops in Oklahoma or places that had been closed or moribund like the Palms Grill Cafe in Atlanta, Illinois.
Pontiac-Oakland Museum, Pontiac
Palms Grill Cafe, Atlanta
Colaw Rooming House, Atlanta (Didn't know about this one)
Sprague Super Service Station, Normal
Cruisin' With Lincoln on 66 Visitors Center, Bllomington
More to Come. --RoadDog
