As we focus on the Centennial we will look back at how it was first mapped out for the nation. The original National Highway Map was released in 1926 on Nov. 11th, the day Route 66 was opened. This is an original map that was published in 1926 and updated in 1950. There are some important facts to learn as we showcase the history of Route 66 and the impact it had not to just the road itself but the entire nation and the start of the Federal Highway System. We plan to honor the first maps and we will issue an official Route 66 Centennial Map of 1926. This will show the original and the current layouts of the road.
The map is the first thing anyone needs to be able to follow the Route and make sure they go the correct way. There will be maps of each state that can be collected to make up one big collection and put together can form a keepsake for the young and old. The best part of all this is you also get to have a lasting impact on the Route 66 " Future Trail " by leaving your mark at selected sites. Enjoy this look back as we push forward in remembering the history of our nations first interstate roads.
We marked the map with a RED line to showcase Route 66 and to follow it easier. There were some interesting facts about the road itself. Did you know it was to go into Santa Fe, NM but someone used their power to make it go around it over a small turf war. The best part of this map is if you look hard enough you can see the 66's turns and follow it into LA as it was first intended.
We even will be printing the map on a shirt so you can wear it as you drive it. We dont suggest using it while you're driving just to be safe. Keep watching as we release this and many other cool and memorable items you can't get anywhere else. Keep on Trucking ! and Take it EV ©
