New Route 66 Museum in Litchfield

From the October 8, 2012, CBS St. Louis.

It should be open sometime in 2013 across the street from Jubelt's Bakery and the famous Ariston Cafe at what used to be Vic Suhling's"Gas for Less"station whose sign remains (but building long gone).

The building is built, but there is a lack of funds for the exhibits.  It will also be home of the Montgomery County Genealogical Society.

The expected cost is $500,000.

Illinois loves its Route 66 as there are already Route 66 museums at Joliet, Odell, Pontiac and Springfield.

Something else to see in Illinois along the Mother Road.
