Historic Route 66

Will Rogers Highway

 

America’s “Mother Road,” stretching from Chicago to Los Angeles, was the first of its kind in many respects. For starters, it was the first diagonal highway covering a long stretch of land in the 1920s. But more importantly, it was a pioneer in connecting small, rural towns in Illinois, Missouri and Kansas with larger, urban regions, which helped farmers ship their goods to the big cities. When it was officially commissioned in 1926, Route 66 included 2,448 miles of road. And even though only 800 of those miles were paved, it still served as the nation’s primary junction between the east and west.
