12 SW 1st St., Afton, OK

The Afton Station was originally the 1930s Eagle Service Station with Spanish Mission styling. It was restored beginning in 1999 by Laurel & David Kane and was operated as a Route 66 information center and classic car museum. It is located at First & Locust on Route 66. Sadly, Laurel passed away in early 2016 and David passed in 2018. The museum and visitor center are permanently closed now, the car collection was sold off in early 2019 and the building shortly after that.

xOld DX and Packard signs hang out front of the museum and Route 66 information center. An early 50s photo of the building shows a Standard Oil sign next to the pump island. At the time of that photo the station was called the Eagle Service Station. In the early 1960s it apparently became the Eagle D-X Station selling the DX brand of gas.

x When the Afton Station Route 66 information center was open there was a large selection of Route 66 info available here including a lot of brochures for other sites along the route.

xDavid Kane housed his collection of classic Packards and other cars and automotive memorabilia in the garage portion of the station and another building behind the station. This room was the service bays when the station was operating. There was another building behind the station that housed much of the Packard collection.

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.
