All of Route 66’s towns January 22, 2014

Posted by Ron Warnick in Road trips, Towns.

An enterprising YouTube user has assembled city-limit signs, welcome signs, or other landmark signs of each town on Route 66 and put them onto one video:

A few dinky or ghost towns are missing, and the 1920s alignment in central Illinois isn’t covered. But this clip is remarkably comprehensive.

When I was in glenrio a few years ago, there were only a few dogs roaming around. I wondered who they belonged to? Ghosts? I never saw any people. It was crazy!!!

Glenrio does have a handful of residents, Randy, including one in particular who’s been there for decades.

We had thought about doing something like this latter on if health permits glad some one has
A year or so ago we stopped in Cuervo to look around
We saw several rolls of chain link fence and post. It appears they had been surveying the area and maybe going to fence some of the old buildings off
The old school we latter found out had been purchased by an elderly lady with the intent to restore it. A few people still lived here as well
Wow a lot of names like you said a few missed but still a really great list
