In 1941 O.E. Carter & Ed Lawson erected a small gas station here and
in 1950 they added this cafe building. Only the cafe building stands today.
The separate small prefabricated gas station building was located on the
right side of the cafe building. It is located just west of the railroad
overpass on Route 66 (by grain silos) or Route 66 (Cty. W) east of I-44,
The words Breakfast Lunch Dinner are very faint but still readable above
the windows. The Lebanon Route 66 Association has partnered with the
property owner to repaint the building and the ghost signs since these
photos were snapped in 2016.
About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane
road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned
lanes are still there.
