1912 Building

318-20 Main St., Depew, OK

East < GO > West

These two store fronts both have murals in the boarded up windows. But the buildings are in ruins with nothing but walls standing behind the facades.

x The store front on the right has "Depew" between the dates 19 & 12 across the top of the building. That makes it one of the oldest buildings on Main Street in Depew. The paintings are of a little girl reaching for the door knocker and people looking out the windows.

x The dates on this panel are very faint, but they are still visible.

I'm guessing at the address number, but the post office is on the right side of these store fronts and it is 316 while the old Spangler's Grocery is next door west side and it's address is 322. The power pole in front of the store fronts has the number 318 on it.

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.
