From the August 22, 2014, Route 66 News.
Being a firm fan of Illinois' stretch of Route 66 (and my second favorite stretch after Missouri) I was interested in seeing this article. The Illinois Route 66 Byway project is planning new wayside kiosks and shadow statues along the route from Godley to Staunton.
GODLEY-- Miner and mule for its mining operations.
ELWOOD-- Rosie the Riveter for the Elwood Arsenal factory
PONTIAC-- Motorcycle police at the State Police HQ.
McLEAN-- Dixie gas attendant.
ELKHART-- Shirley Temple to commemorate her visit to the House By the Side of the Road Cafe in 1930.
SHERMAN-- Wayside Park
BENLD-- Coliseum Ballroom dancers
STAUNTON-- Illinois Traction System-- electric railroad before Route 66 was there.
Just a Bunch More to See. --RoadDog
