Who We Are

We are a group of dedicated people with a passion of preserving the portion of Route 66 that passes through the State of California.  This portion of highway passes through some of the most populated and remote sections of the United States.  In the populated areas, old relics from the highway’s past are quickly be absorbed by new development.  Similar relics in the remote and desolate areas are quickly fading away into the desert wind.

The following video explains our mission

Our goal is to preserve historic portions of Route 66 inside California.  Along with preservation, our other goal is to promote and educate the public about he historical features of Route 66.  In this website, we’ll show you where points of interest, towns and historical landmarks are located, along with facts and the stories that go along with them.

Promotion

Without preservation, we cannot promote the historical aspects of Route 66, because as the future marches on, landmarks that are not preserved will fade away into history.

Our website is your gateway into learning what there is to see along historic Route 66.
