Description

When Route 66 came through Seligman, several motor courts and other roadside services popped up, which was quite a boost to the town’s economy. However, in the 1970s, Interstate 40 was constructed and replaced Route 66 as the primary means of travel, and in the mid-1980s, the Santa Fe Railroad closed its operations in the city. The combination of these two events nearly killed the town. But with the enthusiasm of Seligman’s townsfolk, the famous roadway that had helped to build the town, became designated “Historic Route 66,” and Seligman is now known nationally and internationally as a popular and well-preserved Route 66 stop in Arizona. Visitors to Seligman will want to stop in at Angel & Vilma Delgadillo’s Route 66 Gift Shop & Visitor Center, where they can pick up a walking tour guide to Historic Seligman that will allow them to sneak a peek at the town’s colorful history as a railroad town. In addition, the Snow Cap & Drive-In is a must-see Route 66 landmark.
