The Longhorn Cattle Drive Mural was created by John Gibbons in 1991 according to the signature in the lower right corner. It is located on 11th St. and Military Ave (Route 66) on the side of the former Bilke's Western Store on the first floor and a Western Museum upstairs. Bilke's occupied this building for over 30 years until Jim Bilke retired in 2012.

In 2016 the Somewhere In Time Antiquities antique store opened in this building and the place was chock full of cool old items when we visited.

x The Bilkes building is right across the street from the Cafe on the Route mural, so turn around and snap a photo!

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.
