Route 66 Gateway Sign

Miami, Oklahoma

OklahomaRoadside Attraction

Miami, Oklahoma is known as the Gateway to Route 66 across Oklahoma, being the first major stop after crossing the border from the short Kansas stretch. The town welcomes travelers with the the longest Main Street on all of Route 66 topped with the Route 66 Gateway Sign, a large arch stretching over the historic Route 66 main street road.

What is standing now is actually a replica of the original 1900s sign that graced the town on Central at C Street. It was removed in the 1930s and it wasn’t again until 2012 where the new version was dedicated.

A historical marker to the side shows a photo of the original gateway arch reads:

Gateway Sign – A replica of a sign originally constructed in the 1900’s that spanned Central and C Street adjacent to the railroad station. For many years this sign welcomed visitors to downtown Miami. The original sign was removed in the 1930s. Today’s replica welcomes visitors to a revitalized downtown Miami.
