I have a historic home for sale on Route 66 in Baxter Springs, KS. How can I get it listed on here?

2. Ron - August 21, 2007

If the home is a business, just e-mail the information. But if it’s a residence, we steer clear of those.

I have some pics of various things along Rt 66 from N.E. Oklahoma, S.E. KS, and S.W. Missouri that i would like to Market. Any help would be appreciated.

The historic Needles Theatre on Rt. 66 is being restored. Visit our website : http://www.friendsoftheneedlestheatre or just type Needles Theatre in your browser there are several links there. We formed a noprofit organization and are conducting fund raising events. The theatre was built in 1929 and opened in 1930 it’s been dark since early 1990′s. Donations are welcome !

Why cant anything be done with the frieght trains excessively blowing and really there is no control no natter day or night the full potential of noise is very very disgusting and they show no respect for the mohave county government operations downtown.
Who decided that the noise decibel and type of noise pollution is agreeable to taxpayers
What fool wrote the decision to make this law.
As a result Downtown kingman has so much to offer if only the control of the train noise and quiet zone can be enforced.

I noticed the other day that in Springfield Illinois on the 9th St/Peoria Rd alignment that Jungle Jim’s Cafe and Dude’s Saloon are both for sale by owner. They are right next to each other a couple blocks south of Bill Shea’s Gas Station Musuem.

Sorry, just couldn’t help but remember so many of the places you have listed. Having traveled from St. Louis to Phoenix over the years, as well as growing up in St. Louis, I often get off I-44 just to see the old sights.

Hi All !! Just started viewing this Route 66 News Site after jumping through hoops looking and maybe be planning a Holiday of a life time. After seeing the Pixar Cars Movie I decided that Route 66 has something to offer. I’ll fly out from London Gatwick to arrive at Chicago O’Hare. Not sure if I should rent a Camper, Car, or Motorbike? In fact not sure about anything until I get much more information about weather, places to stay, places NOT to go near, and learn how to drive on the right (thats the wrong side of the road for a Brit)!! When (or if) I get to the LA? I’d then consider the next leg of my journey to New Zealand!

14. Gary - July 18, 2009

Rent a car, then you’re not dependant on the weather. Also an RV could be a pain for some stretches of 66. (Especially since you’ll probably be turning around 100 times to get photos of stuff)

There’s really only one book you MUST have to do the trip, and that’s the “EZ66 Guide for Travelers” by Jerry McClanahan. You’d be foolish to try without this book. Next, I suggest the book “Route 66 Adventure Handbook” by Drew Knowles, which will explain what to see along the way. As an interesting bonus (and besides, it’s really cheap), get the reprinted “A Guide Book to Highway 66″ by Jack D. Rittenhouse. Originally published in 1946, it’s neat to compare “then and now”, and it also helped us understand what some of the ruins we saw used to be.

Good luck, and get going! Stuff disappears on Route 66 every day, so don’t wait.

Ron - March 9, 2011

So it is. Bill says he took it off the market in November. The motel will reopen for tourist season, as usual, next month.
