Just Two Little Towns

I am slowly getting through our vacation in Illinois in April. Once we got deep into Route 66, it was hard to not go crazy taking pictures. Which is why I can only take you to two towns on this post. 
 The little town of Gardner hosts the 2 Cell Jail House which was built in 1906. I am going to skip the pictures of me and Hubby each in one of the cells. 
 Right next to that was the Historic Streetcar Diner. 
 The city of Dwight was our last stop for the day. There was a whole list of sites to see there.
 The Pioneer Gothic Church, built in 1858
 The Oughton House, which is now the Country Mansion Restaurant
 The Oughton Estate Windmill
 Chicago and Alton Railroad Depot, built of native limestone in 1891.
 This is the William Fox Developmental Center
 The First National Bank of Dwight, built in 1905 and designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, one of three banks which he designed and the only one still standing.
  Old Route 66 Family Restaurant
The Ambler Texaco Station, the longest operating gas station along Route 66, filling up cars from 1933 to 1999.
