The largest collection of Historic Route 66 gasoline memorabilia in the mid-west was started in 1995 by owner Bob Mullen and his wife Darlene both lovers of memorabilia from the ’50s/60’s era. Bob’s love and fascination for the old highway Route 66 started in his youth. Living next to the highway he enjoyed sitting on his front porch watching the traffic going up and down the highway, wondering where they were all going in such a big hurry.
An amazing collection of original vintage signs are on display advertising the most popular brands of petroleum, alcohol, and soft drink beverages. Many of the brands displayed no longer exist in the market place today.
An amazing collection of bright neon lights of every shape and size abound. The neon lights are in the form of tavern signs, store clocks, or signs depicting your favorite beverage, all promoting campaign slogans reminiscent of that time.

A Small Town with BIG Ideas! Route 66 Mural City.
The large 1934 two-story building at 308 N. Smith Street is imposing, but it all started with one cabinet and three items. Now there are three floors of history, and it overflows with items of historical interest.
On Smith Street in Cuba, Missouri, next to Recklein Auditorium and across from the Recklein Library, a large, rock 1934 building sits back from the street with a green lawn in front. It even looks historical and is open to the public for a visit or for more extended tours and programs. It is the home of the Crawford County Historical Society and has a sign on the front entrance that reads History Museum in case there is any doubt.
If you haven’t visited or taken your children to the museum, you are missing out on a real treasure. To take this step back in time is an enrichment that shouldn’t be missed.
