Ash Fork, Arizona

The Ash Fork Route 66 Museum is one of the smaller and more interesting stops to make along route 66. You should make sure you know where you are going, because you can easily pass it up if you don’t know what you’re looking for. When you first pull up, it will look like an old rusted barn, but I think that is just to keep the small old town feel to the building. Once inside, you will be taught about the entire history of Ash Fork, the good, bad, and ugly. Although it is a small town, it does have a few interesting points of history, like the Hotel Escalante. This hotel was a Harvey Hotel that eventually ended up getting torn down.
