301 Route 66, Waynesville, MO

East < GO > West

The Pulaski County Courthouse, now the community historical museum, was built in 1903 on the town square along what would become Route 66 in 1926. This was the 4th courthouse built and the 3rd on this site. It served as the county courthouse until 1993 before becoming the Pulaski County Museum. The large plaque out front tells a bit of the history of the county and community. An old canon rests on the lawn out front.

It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979

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.
