Along 66, January 2018: Kingman Gateway Arch, John T. Woodruff and the Rose Bowl
These are taken from the Route 66 News which has a daily list of things happening along 66. I just pick out the ones of most interest to me.
JANUARY 7-- Kingman considers a gateway arch design. They will choose from five possible choices. I always like a good gateway arch for a city like the one in Dixon, Illinois.
JANUARY 7-- John T. Woodruff's 150th birthday commemorated in Springfield, Missouri. he was a major early developer of the city and a key figure in the establishment of Route 66. His former Kentwood Arms Hotel in Springfield is now a dormitory of Missouri State University.
JANUARY 9-- Tulsa's unique 1961 Rose Bowl building is reopening as the 918 Flea Market. The Rose Bowl opened as a bowling alley.
I always like to see a new use for an ld structure, especially a unique one.
