Description

Many of our current highways (including Route 66) follow trails first blazed by Native American footpaths, 19th century canals, and railroad trunk lines. In this presentation, David Clark of Windy City Warrior will explore why Route 66 "winds from Chicago to L.A.," and we look at the historic biography of the local thoroughfares that carried the highway's traffic in the Chicago area.
