Baxter Springs, KS - Phillips 66 Visitor Center

A Phillips 66 gasoline station, opened in 1930 and refreshed into the town visitor center in Baxter Springs, one of only two rural communities to be found in a brief 11-mile slice of historic U.S. Route 66 in the State of Kansas. (Galena is the other.). Route 66 was a mostly two-lane highway between Chicago, Illinois, and Santa Monica, California, that was so popular during the heyday of U.S. family automobile traffic from 1926 into the 1950s that it was known as "The Mother Road."
