Old Gas Station & Post Office

Route 66, Newkirk, NM

East < GO > West

This old gas station and store was also the U. S. Post Office and a Greyhound Bus stop in Newkirk for many years. It is on Route 66 just east of NM 129 at the I-40, exit 300. Route 66 is the north frontage road here.

xThe old store and post office was established in 1910.

The stone walls of the old store probably account for why it has lasted as long as it has.

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.
