LDN -- Top Stories

On Tuesday a special journey running the entire length of Route 66 made stops in Logan County. The purpose of the trip is to celebrate and raise awareness for the unique, fun and quirky aspects of the Mother Road.

In Atlanta, the group made a stop for lunch at the Palms Grill and spent time at the foot of the towns beloved Paul Bunyon statue. Traveling on to Lincoln stops at Route 66 attractions including the newly installed Tropics sign, the Railsplitter Covered Wagon, and the Mill on Route 66 Museum.

Joining in the trek through this part of the state was Illinois Representative Tim Butler. Representing United State Congressman Darin LaHood was Hal Smith out of the Springfield office, and a Logan County native - Reagan Tibbs, who is interning in LaHood's Springfield office. Others joining the group included Bill Thomas of Atlanta, who is also the Chairman of the National Route 66 Road Ahead Partnership; and Bill Kelly and Geoff Ladd of the Illinois Route 66 Scenic Byways.
