[May 29, 2008]  Visitors to this year's Logan County Route 66 Garage Sale, scheduled for June 13 and 14, will notice a few changes in the works. The Route 66 Heritage Foundation has partnered with several other local organizations and businesses to make the event even better than before.

DonutsThe new features start with a Friday afternoon hog roast at The Mill with the ABATE organization and an antique car show hosted by the Railsplitter Antique Auto Club, also at The Mill, on Saturday. From noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday there will be a railsplitting demonstration put on by the Logan County Railsplitting Association at the Railsplitter Covered Wagon.

Also, for those Route 66 history buffs out there, tours are being given of several local Route 66 landmarks. Rare tours of The Tropics, in Lincoln, will be available from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday and noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday. In Atlanta, there will be tours of the Palms Grill from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. Tours of The Mill will also be available on Friday and Saturday. These tours are free and open to the public.

The Logan County Route 66 Garage Sale will have several vendor locations in Lincoln, including Postville Park, Latham Park, the courthouse lawn, the Information Station, the Railsplitter Covered Wagon and McDonald's. Vendors will also be located at the Route 66 Park in Broadwell. There will be townwide garage sales in Atlanta, Lawndale, Broadwell and Elkhart. Maps of the locations will be available by June 1 at the Information Station.

If you're interested in being a vendor, placing your home garage sale on the map or placing an advertisement with the map, please contact the Abraham Lincoln Tourism Bureau of Logan County. Proceeds from the vendor application fees, map listings and advertisements will once again be going to The Mill restoration project. Contrary to rumor, all money earned by the vendors and garage sales does not go to The Mill; it remains the property of the vendors and garage sale owners. The sale is designed so that everyone can make a little money. Call 217-732-8687 for more information.
