Odell, Illinois

Odell is a small town that is filled with route 66 history. One of the cooler stops that everyone makes is by Odell Station. This is a traditional gas station that was made, and is still styled, back in the 50s. You can still see the old school “Mobil” sign for gas on the building. While you are there, take some time to look around back and you will see a ton of old gas pumps that have been used at that station throughout the years. On top of that, the design colors are beautiful because the building is painted in white and red. You can still go inside this old gas station, which is now a welcome center for the town. There you can learn about the towns history, as well as activities to do before you leave (https://www.nps.gov/nr/travel/route66/standardoilgasstationodell.html).
