Most People Have Long Forgotten About This Vacant Ghost Town In Rural Missouri

When Route 66 was born on April 20, 1926, cities along the two lane highway flourished. This 2,448 mile long highway connected Chicago, Illinois to Los Angeles, California and became a popular among travelers looking to get a glimpse of the west. However, as interstates were constructed and Route 66 was rerouted and eventually abandoned, many little towns were suddenly cut off from society. As visitors drove by without a second glance, many of these little towns disappeared from the maps. By now, most people have forgotten about the tiny ghost town of Arlington, Missouri. Do you remember this Route 66 river town?
