Route 66 Museum In Victorville California and Interview With Bruce Davis

Route 66 Museum

(Best Syndication) On Saturday September 29th 2007 we traveled to the Victorville Route 66 Museum on D Street in Victorville (see videos below). The museum is on the old highway which runs down D street and then up 7th street through the Cajon Pass and down the hill to the San Bernardino and Los Angeles basins.

The Mother Road, as it is sometimes referred to, ran from Chicago Illinois through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. The end of this “Main Street of America” was initially Los Angeles, but later a leg was added to Santa Monica California which is on the Pacific Ocean.

Route 66 was part of the US Highway System. Although not completed, the route was established on November 11th 1926. The 2,448 mile highway was more like a road where businesses began to spring up all along the way. Motels and restaurants were created for the sole purpose of servicing the traveler.

The road went through Springfield Illinois, St Louis and Springfield Missouri, Tulsa Oklahoma, Amarillo Texas and San Bernardino California. There were many improvements throughout the route’s lifespan, with alternate routes created. See what others are saying and join the discussion at our Forum

During the depression the route was used for travel to the west coast. During the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, the migration supported the economies and communities along its path. In the 1950s it was unofficially renamed the Will Rogers Highway.

But nothing lasts forever. During the 50s and 60s the Interstate Highway system began to overlap with many of the routes. On June 27th 1985 the highway was officially removed from the US Highway system. Portions of the highway are being designated significant by the Department of Transportation’s National Scenic Byway program.

At the Victorville Museum we spoke to Bruce Davis, who told us about the local portion of the route. He talked about Hulaville and the old drive-in theater in Victorville California.

At the Museum I spoke to Bruce Davis about the memorabilia and a little bit about the history of route 66 and the local significance of the old highway. See what others are saying and join the discussion at our Forum
