You can thank Mr. Angel Delgadillo for Route 66 even being a historic route. This is because he grew up in Seligman, and actually ended up having a barber shop their just like his father after he grew up. It wasn’t until a little after that, all traffic magically stopped down his road. With the new highway, which stopped 2 miles south of his town, left all his cliental. Over time, he fought for route 66 to become historic, so people could remember the slower and more scenic routes in America. To this day, you can still visit his historic barbershop Seligman, which is now filled with artifacts of route 66 all over the walls.
