In 2016 a State Farm office was occupying the old Brown Derby Liquor location on the Chestnut Expressway. John A Morris operated his Brown Derby liquor stores in this 1930s gas station until 1995. His son, John L. Morris started marketing fishing lures out of the back of this store. He is now the owner of Bass Pro Shop.

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.
