Oklahoma's Route 66 - Round Barn
|Photos by Donna Langley
With a three day weekend coming up, dream up a little roadtrip like countless others with no particular place to go. Here in Oklahoma. sightseers will find nearly 400 miles of marked Route 66, stretching all the way across the state from Miami to Texola. Although Depression Era families looked to Route 66 as an avenue to the West and a new beginning, post World War II families began to enjoy a new age of prosperity and the good life. Eager to shake off the blues of the Great Depression, the 50s brought in a flurry of activity when businessmen and shop owners looked forward to the increased traffic on America's Main Street.
