Summer '12 North Carolina Trip-- Part 2

Continuing on Il. Highway 47 to Dwight.  Gas in Mazon the lowest yet, $3.40 and $3.46 in Dwight.

Stopped at the old Ambler-Becker gas station, now a welcome center, on old Route 66, a favorite destination for me these days.  Hey, they are getting into the EV revolution and have an EV station for charging your hybrid.  It costs money, though and none of the two people at the museum knew how much it costs.  I wonder if anyone has "filled up?"

They now have Dwight's first fire engine in the place, just a tad smaller than the modern behemoths.

Always friendly folks volunteering their time in the place.

Took a look at the guest book after signing in, noting foreign 66 travelers going back several days to July 3rd (this was July 10th):

Montreal, Quebec, Switzerland, Buenas Aires Argentina, Norway, Germany, UK, France, Belgium, Cyprus, Holland, Spain and Denmark.  There were others from the same places, but only listed the place once.

Saw a sign "Livingston Co. Supports Dwight Correctional Center."  I think the state has plans to close it down.
