Afton, Oklahoma: Crosstar Flag and Tag

Opened in 2022 by Al Childs in his back yard, which faces Route 66. There's a robot, a mini-Space Shuttle, odd vehicles and art. Al accumulated over 6,000 license plates. Perhaps unique among Route 66 attractions: nothing to buy.

Route 66 Display in Afton

Roadside display photo opportunities! There is an inside display, but it wasn't open. I don't know anything about it; no signs. We just drove by and saw it. We were there at 7:45 pm. Might be closed? Love your app!

With the odd name "Crosstar Flag and Tag," it was built in 2022 by Al Childs in his backyard to amuse Route 66 travelers. "We don't sell anything, just smiles and laughter." Al has amassed a collection of over 6,000 license plates.
