Palms Grill sign relighted April 27, 2007

Posted by Ron Warnick in Attractions, Businesses, Preservation, Signs.

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.
