The 2021 Laclede County Route 66 Guide and Map is off the press, with distribution of the 6,250 copies to begin this week and continue through the year. The free, full-color magazine is an annual partnership of the Lebanon-Laclede County Route 66 Society and the Laclede County Record.

With the 56-page guide – eight pages bigger than in the past – you can travel 36 miles of Route 66 from one end of Laclede County to the other, identifying mile-by-mile 100 existing and past points of interest that made the Mother Road the attraction it continues to be today.

Distribution will be at Route 66 attractions from the St. Louis area on the east to Carthage and Joplin on the west.

Thanks to all the advertisers who support the project each year.
