Dale's Old 66 Barbershop,
Designated as a Joplin Historic Landmark
Soon to be under new
Dale's Old Route 66 Barbershop (formerly a Phillips Petroleum filling station) is located at 2312 Utica in Joplin, MO.) Visit the Photos Link. The Satellite image shows the filling station, the cottage, 2 storage barns and a nice green lawn that can be used for group parking. Other images show the station circa 2001 before the vinyl siding went on. Looks to be in excellent restore-able condition for a 1928 building!
The property has been re-zoned for Commercial Use
In the early 20's, The Shamrock Inn Tourist Camp & Cafe served travelers until Route 66 was designated in 1926. Three cabins were added and a few years later, the Phillips Petroleum filling station was built....making this corner a "full-service" location for travelers on the Mother Road!
Today the property has shrunk in size, and now rests in a nice, quiet subdivision called Royal Heights and hundreds of Route 66 fans still pass-by every week!
Now taking restoration bids. Work begins in 2018.
