Route 66 sign in the City of Lexington, IL

You’ve got to love the gumption of residents of Lexington, IL. When the state of Illinois or one of those Route 66 organizations didn’t deem their town to be worthy of one of their signs… they made their own


What you spot from the Road is this big wooden box with Roadside Attraction written on it with the SAME font you see on this sign below (down to the red lines) only theirs looks like it was produced by the students themselves.


Followed by this sign, which from the looks of it the History Club of the local high school was able to guilt the Illinois state Historical society into making happen… the quality of the casting is NOT up to the level of the official signs
