A new push has begun to save the original structure of the Mill and have it open annually on a regular basis as a museum from April through October. We hope to have positive news soon about grants we have applied for.

Salt Creek ABATE, Route 66 Heritage Foundation of Logan County and the Illinois Route 66 Scenic Byway will be hosting a new Motorcycle Show event on Saturday from 11am to 3pm at The Mill on 66. The event is being held as part of and in conjunction with the Abraham Lincoln Railsplitting Festival (www.railsplitting.com) and the 90th Anniversary of Route 66 (1926-2016). All statewide ABATE members are invited as well as all motorcyclists. There will be People’s Choice awards, live music and hot pizza for the event. A suggested donation for motorcyclists and attendees will go towards the Mill.
