Hackberry, Arizona: Hackberry General Store - Route 66 StuffIf you're a Route 66 dreamer, then Hackberry General Store is your dream-come-true: dusty, small, out in the middle of nowhere, packed with old cars and old Route 66 stuff.
Visitor Tips and News About Hackberry General Store - Route 66 Stuff
An old (and I mean OLD!) gas station has been converted into a Route 66 shrine. Lots of relics, including old concert posters (Elvis, The Beatles, etc). In its Old West way, it is unabashedly a tourist stop -- and it has license plates and money from all over the world to prove it. You can walk around the outside of the store for loads of interesting stuff that most East Coast people (such as myself) have only seen in movies. Budget at least 30 minutes for the full experience![Joel, 07/18/2014]
Glorious. Abandoned gas stop converted into a shrine of car culture.[tenkism, 05/21/2014]
Got our kicks on route 66. My wife and I were traveling from Las Vegas to New Mexico in early February, and decided to use old Route 66 From Kingman, AZ to the Grand Canyon. About 25 miles north east of Kingman, on the right side of the road, we saw what appeared to be an old gas station. It turned out to be one of the most interesting sights we had ever visited.The General store doesn't sell gas, but does sell just about every thing to do with Old Route 66. The store is run by John and Kerry Pritchard. If you go, take a walk behind the store. It has so much unusual stuff. Cars, sheds, garages,cactus, signs and too many things to list. Take a carrot or two and feed the mules that are just beyond the water garden.[Gary and Lynn D. Hare, 04/01/2005]
