This location is CLOSED. You can still drive up for photos but there is a chain link fence so access is very limited.

One of the offbeat attractions that I weirdly enjoyed. We met the owner, Gary. He was so full of information about route 66. He was such a sweetheart. It was pretty nice that we could definitely feel that he has so much love for the road. He is also very knowledgeable about the things the you can do in the surrounding areas. You can buy shirts from his shop, too. Definitely one happy place.

This man is a must meet on route 66. No way to describe him. Let's just say we just wanted to take a picture of his gas station and stayed for almost two hours.

Very cool, lots of interesting stuff to see. A nice 15 minute break off the highway. It opened on time exactly at 8am. Owner is extremely friendly.

This was cool, we got there during off hours, so was closed. But you can take some amazing pictures, and was a great drive. Still should make the stop as well. Happy Trails.

George, Gary's son-in-law was great and very informed as to where to go. Loved all the old stuff he had. It was a museum of old things including cars and two that ran and he's restoring another.

A very unexpectedly pleasant stop on Route 66. Sadly Gary has passed on, but his son-in-law George is doing a fantastic job picking up where Gary left off. George was outside greeting all the guests and making sure everyone was having a good time. The property has two little gift shops, portable bathrooms and wooden fence for all guests to sign. This is a Route 66 must stop!
