Route 66 People: A Who's-Who of Characters, Legends and V.I.P.'s
Many celebrities of Route 66 are often referred to as "Characters"....a term of endearment,  because they have unique talents, out-going personalities and a passion for promoting The Mother Road, Route 66.  
Some are Route 66 business owners, others are not.  On this page, the Chamber wishes to recognize 
these fine people who contributed to the history and legends of this famous highway.
