News From Along Route 66-- September 2015

SEPTEMBER 16TH--  The Maucoupin County Corthouse in Illinois has finished its north-stair renovations.It is part of $200,000 being spent on the Million Dollar Courthouse which was built in 1870.  It is located on the 1926-1934 alignment of Route 66.  This is quite an impressive structure and a million dollars back then was a real lot of money.

SEPTEMBER 20TH--  The restored neon sign was installed at a Kingman, Arizona, auto dealership.  "OK Used Cars" was reinstalled at Dunton Motor Dream machines on Route 66.  The place is located at 119 E. Andy Devine Drive.  The OK Used Car brand was established by Chevrolet in the 1920s.

Two more signs are being restored in town: Hotel Beale's cocktail lounge and Brandin' Iron Motel.

Love those old signs.
