Hydro, Oklahoma: Lucille's Famous Route 66 Gas Station

Built in 1927 and run by owner Lucille Hamons until her death here in 2000. Now owned by a Route 66 fan who fixed it up -- and then opened "Lucille's Roadhouse" to the east; but don't be fooled, this is the original.

Lucille's Famous Route 66 Gas Station

A lonely, smallish building by today's standards. The historical marker mentioned in a previous tip is still there. So interesting to imagine it being a popular, busy place back in its heyday. Plenty of room to park.

Old Route 66 Gas Station

Lucille's was a gas station on Route 66. The outside has been restored and a marker tells the tale of the family that lived there and ran the station for many years.
