Route 66 group conducting membership drive

Geoff Ladd of the Route 66 Heritage Foundation of Logan County wants to get going in restoration efforts for The Mill in Lincoln, Ill., and other Route 66 projects.

To do this, he and his group are conducting a membership drive, according to a news release. Individual memberships are $15 a year, and business memberships are $25 annually. It includes a newsletter, invitations to group meetings, updates on projects, vending opportunities at events and advertising possibilities in publications.

All proceeds from memberships and donations to the organization go towards the restoration and promotion projects for Logan County’s Route 66.

“There is a lot of work to be done as far as restoring The Mill, as well as other pressing projects in need of our attention, such as The Tropics, the Texaco Station in Elkhart and the Route 66 Ghost Bridge in Lincoln,” Ladd said.

If you’re interested in joining the Route 66 Heritage Foundation of Logan County or donating to it, you can call (217) 732-8687, e-mail [email protected], or mail a check to:

    Has anyone heard when the “Bent Door” in Adrian, TX plans to reopen? We heard a few months ago it was under new ownership and being renovated.

    Also, how is the owner of Vega Motel doing? Has the motel reopened?
