This was the Halstead Bank Building in 1917 then in the 1930s it became the Red Rooster Cafe and since 1995 it has been the California Route 66 Museum.

There are 4,500 square feet crammed full of Route 66 memorabilia. The museum is staffed by a very friendly and informative group of people. There is a fairly well stocked gift shop area full of Route 66 goodies.

A mural on the side of the building features the Joshua Drive-In Theater with a tribute image to the American Graffi movie.

Brownie, the railroad dog was the Victorville railroad station mascot during World War II. "I have information on the dog and marker." His marker stands beside the museum.

x 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
xDid 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.
