Is there a more iconic American highway than Route 66? Known as the Mother Road, the Will Rogers Highway, and the Main Street of America, U.S. Route 66 was part of the original United States highway system established in 1926.
Quite a bit of the original highway is still in use here in Missouri.
In the St. Louis area, two different roads that were part of Route 66 during different eras are home to numerous attractions that tell the story of America's past. These are our real estate agents' favorite roadside attractions on Route 66.
