The College Street Cafe, a vestige of old U.S. Route 66, the famous two-lane highway, portions of which still zig-zag through Springfield, the largest city in the southwest quadrant of Missouri that includes the state’s share of the Ozark Mountains. Known as the “Mother Road,” Route 66 from Chicago, Illinois, to Santa Monica, California, was the nation’s first all-paved long-distance highway. It got its name at a meeting of highway planners here in Springfield in 1926. Photo by Carol Highsmith, 2020.
