Along 66, November 2018: Plans Moving Ahead for the Red Cedar Inn in Pacific, Mo.
NOVEMBER 25-- Pacific, Missouri, moves forward with Red Cedar Inn project. They are turning the former restaurant into a history and visitors center. A contract with an architect was approved November 6.
Plans call for it to be a visitors center, regional museum and a venue with a Route 66 roadside park complex.
The Red cedar Inn was built in 1932 by the Smith brothers. It is on the NRHP and closed abruptly in 2005.
One of my major disappointments was not going to it in the few years after 2002 that I knew about it before it closed.
Looking forward to going inside even if it is not to eat. It is a neat-looking place on the outside.
