The mural on the New Era Community Newspaper's north side includes a large
Route 66 shield, an image of the spherical oil storage tank NE of town,
an oil derrick, the Davenport Cotton Company, cotton fields and a business
district view. The building is located at 209 Broadway.
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.
