Wayside exhibits - Illinois Route 66 Scenic Byway
STORIES FROM THE ROAD
Welcome to
Illinois Route 66!
Come explore unique people,
places, and stories through our
wayside exhibits. Our exhibits are
as diverse as 66 itself covering
everything from riots, the invention
of the motel, and the birth of the
Cozy Dog.
Follow the Stories of
THE ROAD
The 31 Illinois Route 66 Wayside exhibits can be
found in 17 communities along the Mother Road.
Each wayside is placed at a site with historic
significance and tells the story of the site’s
relationship to Route 66. The interpretive stations
use illustrations, pictures, and audio to explore
each site. Don’t forget to bring a notebook
and a pencil to collect all 12 Passport
Stamps! When you discover a stamp
simply place a piece of paper over the
rubbing station and use your pencil to
collect a unique engraving.
The United States Department of
Transportation has designated certain US
roads as National Scenic Byways because
of their special significance to the
American people. Because of its historic
importance, Illinois Route 66 became a
National Scenic Byway in 2005.
Along with our State Agency partners,
the Byway works with communities and
businesses to provide a memorable Mother
Road experience for travelers on
Route 66 in Illinois.
