Your guide for Route 66 travel information, attractions, planning and hotel accommodations.

Pick a State or City to explore


Another charming example of the American landscape along Route 66 is Chatham – a western Illinois town south of Springfield.

Chatham is known for several attractions showcasing Illinois' unique history. Check out the 1902 Chatham Railroad Museum – housed in the city's former train depot that served the passengers of Chatham for seven decades. The Chicago & Illinois Midland Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society maintains the museum.

Other sites in Chatham include the Caldwell Farmstead – found on the National Register of Historical Places – and the now-pedestrian-only Sugar Creek Covered Bridge. And speaking of pedestrians, stretch out those road legs on the five-mile Interurban Trail running through town.
