Galena's Howard "Pappy" Litch Park
The Howard "Pappy" Litch Park in Galena was donated by the chamber of commerce and other members of the community. While it's more recent than Route 66, it does house a modern Will Rogers Highway marker, and a relocated 1952 marker dedicating Route 66 as the Will Rogers Highway. That original marker is just like the one in California and was originally located at the Kansas-Missouri border on the post 1940s alignment.
The location used to be a weigh station, and is being developed by the local community into a Route 66 attraction.
