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.
