FFA Route 66 Sign

Riverton, Kansas

KansasRoadside Attraction

The FFA Route 66 Sign in Riverton, Kansas is a 20-foot-tall rendering of the recognizable Route 66 shield you will see in many forms across the route. Across the top is the word “Kansas” and the giant “66” is made from reused rust-colored hubcaps.

The sculpture is visible as you drive through a roundabout coming to or going from Galena. Pull over to park in the small parking area just beyond the sign and explore some informational kiosks on Route 66, Boom Towns, the Baxter Springs Massacre, and Fort Blair before walking through the grass to get to the roadside attraction.

Riverton FFA students came up with the idea for the sculpture, wanting to do something to promote local tourism. Under the supervision of FFA adviser Jacob Larison, it took about two years and $700 to complete. The Route 66 Byway Committee and Cherokee County gave $300 to the cause and Kansas DOT donated scrap metal and old hubcaps to use as material.

The FFA Route 66 Sign was installed off the roundabout in April 2018.
