This old Whiting Bros sign is located on the east end of Tucumcari on
Route 66 next door to the Super 8 Motel. The gas station which was still
standing in 2009 has been torn down since then, just the iconic Whiting
Brothers sign was still standing in 2015 but even that was gone by 2018.
For several years there was a Whiting
Brothers Motel farther west on Tucumcari Blvd.

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.
