East < GO > West

The 1924 Blue Dome Gulf Station and Garage building are well enough known that the neighborhood around it is called the Blue Dome District. Before they were torn down for a street widening project there were canopies on facing both streets that covered the gas pumps. When it was new there was a small apartment in the dome for the manager. Handily the gas station attendant lived upstairs in the dome.

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.
