The Sun Cities Area Historical Society will offer a presentation examining the history of one of the nation’s most famous highways — Route 66 — during its annual meeting.
Guest speaker Marshall Stone will share stories of the famous 2,500-mile highway, commonly referred to as “The Mother Road,” during the annual meeting 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12 at Oakmont Recreation Center, 10725 W. Oakmont Drive, Sun City.
Mr. Stone specializes in uncovering obscure treasures from the past, including the semi-forgotten people, places and events that shaped Arizona and the city of Phoenix. He uses storytelling magic, recovered film footage, old photographs and artifacts to bring history to life. As a result, his presentations are as entertaining as they are educational.
SCAHS owns and operates the Del Webb Sun Cities Museum, 10801 W. Oakmont Drive, Sun City. The museum is located in one of the first model homes for the nation’s first age-restricted active adult community. The museum will be open following the meeting. Admission is free and open to the public.
