Meteor City Trading Post

Formerly a gift shop (I remember shopping here about 20 years ago), this site is now an abandoned geodesic dome surrounded by faded tar paper teepees. Vandals have broken into the dome and smashed all the display cases. Behind the dome is a cluster of trailer homes that are also abandoned. In the parking lot is what has to be one of the world's largest dream catchers at 12 feet tall.

Meteor City: World's Longest Map of Route 66

We drove by and were greatly saddened to see that the entire map is gone -- whether it was blown or torn down I do not know.

World's Longest Map of Route 66

Meteor City Trading Post is completely defunct now. Not even the map is standing. We cruised by on a Monday morning and were disappointed to see the map in complete disrepair.

The "Save a Landmark" logo painted by Hampton Hotels (from back in the day when they were sponsoring Rt. 66 landmark makeovers) is still awkwardly visible....

Route 66 map falls apart.

Meteor City Trading Post - World's Longest Map of Route 66

Meteor City Trading Post has closed. The World's Longest Map of Route 66 is falling apart. Stopped by last week; you can still drive up to it.

[David Kamada, 04/02/2013]

The Trading Post opened in 1938 and was put up for sale in September 2012. The map was painted by a hotel chain in 2002 as a publicity stunt; the big Save-a-Landmark branding was never intended to be ironic.
