The Route 66 Association of Kingman in Kingman, Arizona, is seeking donations of old neon signs and money to help set up neon parks along Route 66 in town, according to an article in theKingman Daily Miner.
The parks will be linked with other developments along the Route 66 corridor such as the Route 66 Walk of Fame, which was unveiled during the International Route 66 Festival in 2014 and commemorates individuals who contributed to the highway’s history.
Informational photo kiosks will provide visitors with a glimpse of Kingman before Interstate 40, when Route 66 was the main highway, as well as the period of the National Old Trails Highway. […]
Among the early acquisitions is a sign from the Brandin’ Iron Motel, which is being kept in a downtown garage until it is restored.
The association is in discussions with the Mohave Museum of History and Arts for contribution of the circa-1930s sign, “Entering El Travatore Unincorporated.”
Those who wish to make donations to the association or give it an old neon sign can contact the association here. The association’s office is in the historic Dunton Motors Dream Machinesbuilding, 119 E. Andy Devine Ave. in Kingman.
