When Route 66 came to Arizona, the state was less than fifteen years old. But Arizona embraced the Mother Road, clinging to it long after any other state and then making sure that the world didn't forget it. Today that heritage is marked along the roadside by abandoned places which all tell a story, a narrative picked out in trading posts and motels and ordinary people.
To many travelers, these stores, diners and motels were a lifeline; to the people who owned them, they were, quite simply, their life. In an effort to ensure that we don't forget this recent history--the tales that make up the past, the buildings that provide us with a doorway into yesteryear--Abandoned Route 66 Arizona records some of those places along the Mother Road before they finally fade away and take their stories and secrets with them.
