Will Rogers Highway MarkerRoute 66
This Will Rogers Highway marker sits on the edge of a large open field on the north side of the road west of Texola and just east of the Texas/Oklahoma state line. It was erected in 2002 because the original 1952 Will Rogers Highway bronze plaque had gone missing. As these markers go, this one is pretty easy to find. But there isn't any real parking here other than just pulling off the road onto the shoulder of the four lane.
Like other original Will Rogers Highway Markers the first marker here read:
It's a road of many names, Route 66, the Mother Road, the Will Rogers Highway and the Main Street of America. On top of that many, many towns along the way have their own names for it, some/many/most of which were in place before the main east/west road through their town was designated as Route 66 in 1926. That's because it was a collection existing roads that were collectively designated as Route 66. It's amazing the road hasn't had an identity crisis!
