Eye-catching neon signs lit up nights along Route 66 in days gone by. This neon sign enticed travelers to stay at the Will Rogers Motor Court while driving through Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Route 66, also known as Will Rogers Highway, came into existence in 1926, and ribboned its way from Chicago, IL through six states before ending in Santa Monica, CA.
This Mother Road facilitated westward migration during the 30s, 40s, and 50s. Travelers found opportunities at every curve to shop, sleep, eat and gas-up at the many small businesses that popped up along the route.
We handcraft this Will Rogers sign from 3/4" thick wood in our Wooster, Ohio workshop.
Look for Casper, our black cat mascot, within the sign design, this tells you that you've got your paws on an authentic Cat's Meow.
