Parks In The Pines General Store, Located In Arizona On Route 66, Is Older Than The Highway Itself
Route 66 isn’t called ‘The Mother Road’ for no reason; it’s been around for quite some time. Taking that into consideration, finding a business that’s even older – like Park in the Pines General Store – is truly fascinating. This little family-owned country spot dates to 1906, which is 20 years before the highway was built.
