Route 66 News

A profile of the folks behind Becky’s Barn

Mark Rivera of WAND-TV in Decatur, Ill., has been posting some of his stories to YouTube. The latest is his whimsical profile of Becky and Rick Hargett of Becky’s Barn antique store, visitors center, and snack shop on an old brick alignment of Route 66 near Auburn, Ill.

I think this video was made last year. I haven’t found anything about a Route 66 festival in nearby Carlinville in 2013, although there was one last summer.

Becky’s Barn also is on Facebook, and the account is updated regularly.

    Route 66 needs more local & national media to promote it and the businesses and people who make it what it is.

    Hey, there. Kinda confused here.
    I don’t see this stretch on the fabled (and so far, to me, very accruate) maps by Ross and McClanahan.
    Are there any/many more errors?
