News From Along Route 66-- November 2015: Shea's Mahan Gas Station Stays in Springfield

NOVEMBER 26--  There is a Cozy Dog commercial you need to check out at Route 66 News.com.

NOVEMBER  27--  Edwardsville, Illinois, admits they are missing Route 66 opportunities.  But, if Bloomington-Normal can figure that out, anything is possible.

NOVEMBER 29--  Local businessman buys Shea's Mahan gas Station in Springfield, Illinois.  Jeff Fulgenzi, owner of Fulgenzi's Pizza & Pasta bought it and will move it to a site east of his restaurant at 1168 Sangamon Avenue.  The station dates back to the 1920s and was originally in Middletown, Illinois.

Looks like I will have somewhere to check out the next time I'm in town.  They are across from the Illinois State Fairgrounds and boast the World's Greatest Hamburger.
