History of Route 66

Prior to the construction of old route 66 in the mid-1920’s, smaller outlying communities had no access to our country’s national road system. After route 66 was completed this all changed.  In its heyday, the small towns and communities that thrived along old route 66 were passed through by thousands of vehicles per day.

Then beginning in the mid 1950’s the US government built larger, faster divided highways that slowly bypassed entire stretches of the old 2-lane US route 66. Traffic on route 66 was lost to these 4-lane interstate roadways and eventually the number of vehicles passing through these small towns along the mother road dwindled down into the single digits.

As an old route 66 enthusiast I remember traveling the mother road in my youth. I remember those authentic, antique route 66 metal signs. I also remember seeing all the posted signs that informed passing motorists of the numerous roadside attractions, motels, gas stations, drive-ins and unique diners like Alice’s Eatery & Service Station (eat here and get gas!).

After the last stretch of old route 66 was bypassed by Interstate 40 at Williams, Arizona in 1984 the US federal government decommissioned the mother road. Today, like many of the antique metal signs that could be found along old route 66, most of these vintage signs and the places they advertised are also gone.

A few simply exist as ghosts of the mother road lingering to remind us of a fantastic bygone era when mom & pop diners, malt stops, motels, tourist courts and other roadside attractions of every nature flourished and nourished our traveling America.  In the last decade the mother road has enjoyed a revival of sorts and has since become a destination unto itself attracting tourists from around the world.

Vintage Route 66 Metal Highway Signs

Vintage, Nostalgic and 100% Authentic

Historic US route 66, America’s highway, was once America’s most traveled and well-marked highway and fondly referred to as the mother road.

Vintage US highway metal sign markers along Route 66 were designed to last a lifetime and made of deep embossed, 16-gauge metal steel that was enamel painted and baked.

Authentic, antique metal signs for Route 66 have a nostalgic value that is quite simply, difficult to put a price on, especially the vintage Route 66 metal signs. These antique metal signs are like contemporary art pieces of our early American heritage.

Only about 85% of the mother road remains drivable. The old Route 66 Highway is no longer well marked with those vintage, heavy gauge, antique metal road signs.

In areas where organizations and historic Route 66 advocates have posted new Route 66 highway sign markers, Route 66 souvenir hunters tend to steal most of these collectible metal signs.

But, here at Crossroads Signs, you can get your own high-quality steel, authentic Route 66 sign without stealing it. See our selection of Route 66 State Signs >
