Two historic properties for sale in Galena, Tucumcari

In the past week or so, we’ve stumbled onto historic properties along Route 66 in Galena, Kansas, and Tucumcari, New Mexico, that might interest a prospective entrepreneur for not a lot of money.

The Tucumcari property once was the Jerry’s Liquors store. It also once was a tattoo shop and a grocery store. Records indicate the building may date to 1907.
