LDN -- Top Stories

Last week, the push was on to get the Mill on Route 66 ready for its grand opening. Among the final touches at the Mill was the installation of a new sign. For many years the signage in front of the Mill reflected the Route 66 Heritage Foundation and featured a thermometer signifying the foundation was fundraising for the restoration project. Last week that old sign came down and a new one "The Mill on 66" took its place.

It has taken more than a decade, but on Saturday the Mill will open as a Route 66 Museum. A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at noon, and the museum will be open to the public. There will also be other events taking place including live entertainment, food, and weather permitting a parade.
