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.more

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.more
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.more

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...more
The Roadkill Cafe offers meals with appetizing names referring to roadkill, like Splatter Platter, the Big Bagged Stag, and Highway Hash. They are best known for their burgers but I had breakfast there. I ordered Possum Roadkill which was eggs, bacon and toast. The food was average, and the service was a little slow. It was okay overall; but you may want to eat elsewhere then come here to buy a unique souvenir (maybe a T-shirt). Co-located with the OK Saloon. Hours are 7 AM to 9 PM daily.
This store has many wonderful Route 66 memorabilia , a snack bar, gas station, and a campground,which including shower facilities with full hookups available for RVers. It is nice and clean and a great place to just sit back and relax some.
Open daily from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m
Very sad news. I had been informed that they torn down this wonderful structure. I will keep this here for future reference. You do not have to rate.
The Havasu Hotel was built in 1905 and is one of four surviving Arizona hotels built by the famed Fred Harvey, who brought rest, good food, and hospitality to those weary railroad travelers. He won fame for building at least 80 hotels, restaurants, lunchrooms and newsstands along the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad between Chicago and Los Angeles. The Havasu Hotel had about 60 rooms and a restaurant, a lunch counter, a bar and a reading room, which was moved to another location. The doors closed in the 1950's and then utilized as a maintenance building till 1989. Now she is abandon and in danger of being demolished. Many local residents are trying to save her, but need the fund to have her moved to preserve her. You can almost see her from Route 66(Chino Street).
On old Route 66 at the east end of town on the south side of the street. Take either exit #121 or #123 from I-40.
