New Mexico Route 66 Association
The New Mexico Route 66 Association is dedicated to the protection and preservation of former US Highway Route 66.
Our organization promotes the historic significance of Route 66 while assisting New Mexico communities and businesses find revitalization through tourism.
Our efforts include working with the Departments of Tourism and Transportation, Chambers of Commerce, state representatives, city leaders, independent businesses, historians, and just about anyone sharing our cause. We have obtained grants from the NPS Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program and the State of New Mexico in order to restore neon, repair roofs, record and archive oral histories, update corridor management plans, create an informative state map and publish an informative color magazine.
There is much to be done. Our 465 mile stretch of Route 66 does not have a museum dedicated to the memory of its glory days, we still have structures of historical significance fading into obscurity and are still in need of an intensive road bed survey. The New Mexico Route 66 Association is an all volunteer organization of dedicated people sharing a love of the Mother Road.
