The 1887 Yeakly Chapel is on the southwest corner at junction of Farm Road 65 and MO 266, look for the Yeakly Cemetery sign up by the road.

The current building replaced an 1882 church that was destroyed by fire. John Yeakly donated the land and assisted in the construction of the new church. A small cemetery is next door and John Yeakly is buried here.

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.
