Joseph Joe's Big Indian Trading Post featured Indian jewelry, moccasins,
and western curious among many other things aimed at getting more tourists
to part with a few more dollars. The sign as seen here has been altered,
originallythe Indian's right ar was stretched out and resting on a long
sign that ran along the ridge of the roof and read "Joseph Joe's
Big Indian Western Gifts Retail & Wholesale"
When this photo was taken Sweetland Furniture Mfg. Company was using
the buildings. The sign has been taken down since this photo was snapped.
About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane
road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned
lanes are still there.
