Along 66, September 2018: Cucamonga and Parkview

SEPTEMBER 8--   Cucamonga Service Station gets government award for preservation.  In Rancho Cucamonga, California.  One of the prettiest of the old gas stations.

SEPTEMBER 17--  The rebuilt Parkview Inn in Bloomington, Illinois, may reopen in November.

It was destroyed by fire two years ago.  It opened in 1928 and was on the 1930-1940 Route 66 alignment on Morris Avenue.

Never eaten there but will look for it the next time through.  Since the Bloomington-Normal area has finally accepted its Route 66 heritage, we will now drive through it instead of taking I-55 around it.
