To join in the fun go to My World Tuesday
Elk City was an early Route 66 town. In 1931 the US Highway 66 Association held its annual convention here and more than 20,000 people attended! That was an impressive crowd in those days, with travel more difficult and much slower. The National Route 66 Museum celebrates Route 66, not only in Oklahoma, but in all eight states it passes through. The museum focuses on the people who lived, worked and traveled this world famous route and visitors walk through all eight states! The realistic murals and exhibits feature vintage automobiles and antiques from the hey-day of Route 66. This museum is about 90 minutes south of us and always makes a great day out for our visitors.
