American Factoids:


One of America's famous highways, Route 66, aka The Mother Road, was decommissioned on June 27, 1985, with its signs removed and the road almost lost in history, at least on maps. Since that time, enthusiasts and historians have worked together to preserve it's path, with most states having historical road signs travelers can follow, and many GPS devices still showing the original Route.


Road Does Not End Sign in Amarillo, Texas



Abraham Lincoln was a man of perseverance. Before Lincolnís election as the 16th president of the United States he failed as a business man, storekeeper, and farmer. He also failed in his first attempt to obtain political office, when he sought the office of speaker, in his first attempt to go to Congress, when he sought the appointment to the United States Land Office, when he ran for the United States Senate and when friends sought for him the nomination for the vice-presidency in 1856.


Texas was the most active gunfighting state, with some 160 shoot-outs from the 1850's through the 1890's.



Did You Know?

The term "Red Light District" came from the Red Light Bordello in Dodge City, Kansas.  The front door of the building was made of red glass and produced a red glow to the outside world when lit at night. The name carried over to refer to the town's brothel district.

Pic Fave of the Moment


Pueblo Hotel Vintage Sign, by Jeroen and Maggie Boersma

Built as the Willard Hotel, in Tucson, Arizona in the early 1900's, in 1948 the property was renamed the Pueblo Hotel and Apartments. The sign went through various stages, with the swimming pool text and diver added in the 1950's. This vintage icon of a sign in Tucson was restored in 2012. Photo by Jeroen and Maggie Boersma and featured in our new Boersma Collection.

Americana - From baseball to apple pie, Thanksgiving to cheeseburgers, Norman Rockwell paintings to a genre of American music having roots in early folk and country styles, Americana is all things American. More specifically, it is those values, traditions, cultures found within the melting pot of the United States.  Read More..

Hey, Ya'll! 


Dave and Kathy at Big Nose Kate's Saloon in Tombstone, Arizona

Lots of folks think Legends of America is a big corporation with dozens of employees -- because we've been around so long & provide thousands of web pages -- Nope, we're not.


Legends is actually comprised of just two of us -- Dave & Kathy, who have a love of history, travel, and a desire to share it with the world!


Though we are a small Mom & Pop "shop", we have decades of customer service & business experience between the two us -- in both large and small organizations. With an entrepreneurial dream, we launched Legends of America in 2003


We are Midwest born and bred with great values. You'll find, with just an email, phone call, or order, that our customer service is Over the Top!!


The Legends General Store and our Photo Shop are the means for providing the volumes of information to our readers at no cost.
