Palms Grill sign relighted

The old neon sign of the Palms Grill in downtown Atlanta, Ill., was relighted in a ceremony this week, reports the Bloomington Pantagraph.

The sign was restored in part with a grant from the Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program.

The newspaper didn’t have any photos of the new sign, but here’s an artist’s rendering.

The circa-1938 building on old Route 66 eventually will be reopened to house the town’s museum and a cafe.

UPDATE 4/30/07: Peter Stork at Digital Route 66 has this picture and others of the Palms Grill sign and building.
