It has served as a theatre, dance hall, trading post, community center and still has a beautiful working old fashion soda fountain complete with serving counter and stools. It is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places too. The walls have many vintage memorabilia all over the walls.

    Seligman was established in 1889. Today the population is about 500. The town died out some when the historic Route 66 was replaced by Interstate 40. Seligman is proud of its heritage though. Take a detour off the interstate and check it out. Shown here is a display of old west style buildings and items.

    This shop has one of the funkiest store fronts I have ever seen. It immediatly catches your eye. It screams fun and come inside! So we went inside and discovered that is has this huge collection of Route 66 merchandise I have ever seen. If they make a Route 66 items, this store has to have it. What a neat store. The folks who own and run it were really friendly. We had ask if they were doing ok and the lady said they get lots of business from the tour buses who stop here and those who explore while trucking along the old Route 66. So please check out this place if your ever incline to veer off the interstate.

    Snow Cap Drive-In

    by Yaqui Updated Jan 21, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Built in 1953 by Juan Delgadillo and family who still runs this establishment, is one of the Route 66 Icons. This certainly caught my eye right away because of all the interesting route 66 artifacts that practically cover the whole builing, I kid yo. It looks fun and it mostly certainly gives you plenty to look at. Pretty neat establishment.

    Seligman Gas Station

    There is small Route 66 Museum in Seligman at an old Gas Station. It contains all the typical relics of Route 66 (Gas Pumps, Signs, etc.). There are a couple of cars from the 50's parked outside and it is right next to the Snow Cap. It also has a small gift shop inside. Worth a quick stop if you are passing through.

    Juan Delgadillo's Snow Cap

    by Paulie_D Updated Oct 31, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Any trip down Route 66 isn't complete without stopping off for a snow cone at Juan Delgadillo's Snow Cap.

    Located just along the street from Angel Delgadillo's Barber Shop.

    Angel was one of the moving forces in the founding of the Historic Route 66 Association of Arizona and in 1987 successfully lobbied the Arizona Legislature to designate and preserve Route 66 in Arizona as an historic highway.

    Juan is famous for having fun with unsuspecting tourists.

    The Snow Cap is perhaps one of the most wackiest, off-beat burger joints around. Juan and his family serve up a real dollop of laughs along with great shakes and soft ice cream.

    You can spend several minutes trying to get a snow cone or a bottle of water, being offered 'EXACTLY' what you asked for, but not getting what you want.

    Ask for a bottle of water and you'll be presented with a baby's bottle. Ask for small cone and you'll get something the size of a thimble.

    Don't take my word for it. Take a few minutes, get off the main highway and visit Main Street, Seligman, a real Route 66 institution.

    Old Cars, Old Town, Must Drive on Route 66

    by aussiedoug Written Mar 14, 2004

    Historic town, historic cars

    The town itself and the interesting things like the cars in this photo.

    I'd really love to do a big road trip, starting up in Illinois. I think that's where Route 66 started, but please feel free to let me know if I'm incorrect. And driving all the way to where it ends in L.A. I think you can still go well over half the way on the old Route 66.

    Bet lot's of Americans have done this trip just like I'd like to do it. Don't think though that my 5 year old twin girls would find it half as alluring as the old Disneyland eh?
