Route 66 was officially established on November 1926. It was one of the original US highways — and it connected Chicago to Los Angeles, passing almost 2,500 miles through 8 states.
St. Louis was the largest city between the Mother Road’s endpoints.
A few traces of the road here remain along Watson, Chippewa, and Gravois. (Think Ted Drewes!) And there are certainly plenty of people around who remember St. Louis before the Interstate Highways bisected neighbors.
Any memories to share before the anniversary month passes?
