Illinois Route 66 Scenic Byway Interpretive Statue and Wayside Panel
This “Home on the Road” statue, paying tribute to the Dixie Truck Stop across the street, and accompanying panel are part of a series of Illinois Route 66 Scenic Byway Interpretive Statues and corresponding wayside panels located in Route 66 communities. The statues tell the story of The Road in a way that is unique and unexpected by visitors.
They also serve as a fun photo opportunity. The “shadow statues” are so nicknamed because they are two-dimensional iron statues depicting a famous scene from the history of Route 66 in Illinois.
