By 1947 M.S Murrell and L.E. Newman had opened the Murrell Tourist Rooms
and Cabins. It was pretty common in the early years of Route 66 for people
who owned larger homes to open the house to travelers on a day by day
lodging guests in the main house went well, they sometimes built a few
cabins behind the main house to expand their business. These cabins
are in back of the big white house on Sophia St.
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.
