These come from the Route 66 News site which has much more information about each story plus many more. I just write about the ones of particular interest to me.
JANUARY 1-- Death of singer Natalie Cole, daughter of Nat King Cole who made the famous first version of "Get Your Kicks on Route 66."
JANUARY 8-- Hawkins Mill in Springfield, Missouri, being torn down. Too bad as it is an impressive building which was constructed in 1940.
JANUARY 10-- 2015 marked the sixth consecutive year of tourism grown in Pontiac, Illinois. Definitely one small town proud of its Route 66 heritage and other history. Sure are a lot of things to see and do there and more always being added.
JANUARY 11-- Melba Riggs retiring from Cars on the Route in Galena, Kansas. She and her fellow owners sure have done a lot for that town with the reopening of the old station and acquiring the truck that served as the inspiration for Tow Mater in the movie "Cars."
