Travelling Dutch Style
spacer (1K)

The Netherlands has come to Route 66!  Authentic wooden shoes, a personalized card from Adriann (Adriann and Bassie), a bottle of Bols and a signed copy of Jeroen van Bergeiijk's book, My Mercedes Is Not For Sale, and a pair of dainty Delft china shoes are on display with other Dutch mementos on our soda fountain in the store.  These items complement the other mementos on display from various foreign countries.  All these items from around the world remind us of the warm experiences we've exchanged with our global visitors.

Seligman, Arizona
spacer (1K)

During this time of year on Route 66 in Seligman, Arizona, we enjoy the peacefulness as we see the snow (yes, snow in Arizona) and feel the cooler temperatures (below freezing). Since Seligman's elevation is 5,250 feet (1600 meters) we experience four seasons unlike the desert areas only 2 hours to the south of Seligman. The town is quiet during this time of year which gives us time to reflect on what a great place this is to live.

We welcome the correspondence from Dries Bessels, writing from Amsterdam.  We encourage you to check out his website,  http://www.rte66.nl/.  This is the online publication for The Dutch Route 66 Association.  It's great information for your travels on Route 66.  His firsthand experience on the road is evident.  We look forward to seeing him in 2009.  Thanks for educating the Dutch about Route 66 in both English and Dutch.

Sue and Pepe Maxwell
spacer (1K)

It was great to meet people like Sue and Pepe Maxwell. We enjoyed the spirit they brought to the Sundries with their musical abilities. We look forward to their next visit.  Here is an excerpt from their correspondence:

"We began our love affair with Rte 66 as many others did...by watching the movie "CARS". My husband Pepe originally thought it was just another animated kids movie. But as he was strolling through the t.v. room one day, he heared something about the 'Hudson Hornet'. "The Hudson Hornet was the winningest dirt track NASCAR racer...my Gramma had a Hornet and my Dad had a Hornet," he told our grandson Vin and me. You see, Pepe has a latent NASCAR gene. So when he figured out the CARS storyline...well, he was hooked. The RV season after we saw the movie was our year "to do" Rte 66. And that was the year we met Lynne and Frank. Their 'Seligman Sundries' was closed when we arrived in town, and we were on the move. But we rode the Wing back from Grand Canyon Caverns to buy a Tow Mater T-shirt. We found conversation easy with Lynne, and when she found out our love affair with CARS, she called Frank to ask him to bring Tow Mater to the store so we could have our picture taken on/in 'him'. We left with the knowledge that we had met some very wonderful people."...   Sue Maxwell

Travelling on two wheels - No, not on a Harley
spacer (1K)

Have you ever been tired driving long distances?  How about driving from the farthest point north in Alaska to Patagonia, at the southernmost tip of South America?  Better yet, how about experiencing the trip by bicycle?  That is what one of our 2007 visitors is doing.  Rin Hayashi from Japan (pictured here) is in Chile as of this date with this goal in sight.  He travelled by bicyle through Seligman in 2007.  When Rin left our store, we felt he had the determination and physical ability to complete this trip.  We wished him well and have followed his progress. Congratulations, Rin, on your accomplishment!  Thanks for sharing your inspiring story with us. You can read about Rin's adventure on his website www.,rinrinweb.com.

January 10th update... Rin is 100km west of Santiago, Chile. "Someday I'd like to be cycling whole Route 66, it's one of my dreams."   Rin

U.S.A. Flag History and Facts
spacer (1K)

In the next few issues, we will present some interesting history and facts about our Unites States of America flag.

The flag of the United States
, popularly called the American flag, is the official national flag of the United States. It consists of 13 horizontal stripes, 7 red alternating with 6 white, and in the upper corner near the staff, a rectangular blue field, or canton, containing 50 five-pointed white stars. The stripes symbolize the 13 colonies that originally constituted the United States of America. The stars represent the 50 states of the Union. In the language of the Continental Congress, which defined the symbolic meanings of the colors red, white, and blue, as used in the flag, “White signifies Purity and Innocence; Red, Hardiness and Valor; and Blue, Vigilance, Perseverance and Justice.” Because of its stars, stripes, and colors, the American flag is frequently called the Star-Spangled Banner, the Stars and Stripes, or the Red, White, and Blue. Another popular, patriotic designation, Old Glory, is of uncertain origin.

Route 66 -  Coffee Break News
spacer (1K)

Our winter break is winding down and soon we will be re-opening Historic Seligman Sundries after the middle of March.  We look forward to seeing you again... if you're in the area, please stop in and say hello.  You can bet we'll have fresh gourmet coffee brewing!

As many of you begin to make your travel plans this summer, we suggest you consider staying in Seligman instead of just passing through. We have seven motels locally owned.  All are clean, comfortable and reasonably priced.  You will find yourself out of the larger urban cities, and it will give you a chance to get a real feel for the "old road".  Seligman also offers good restaurants, friendly people and a few good watering holes.  Also, Seligman is mid-point between Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon and also mid-point between Phoenix and Las Vegas.

We have added some short video movies on our website www.seligmansundries.com . You can also view two short videos we created on YouTube.  Enjoy!

Seligman Wild Burros
spacer (1K)

In the surrounding ranchland of Seligman you'll discover many wild burros such as the one "posing" in the photo. Wild burros feed on a variety of plants, including grasses, Mormon tea, palo verde and plantain.  Although some moisture is provided by these plant materials, wild burros must have drinking water throughout the year. They can usually be seen foraging for food during daytime, except for summers, when they will forage only at night and in the early morning.  Many oldtimers say that these burros are descendants of the burros that called Oatman home many years ago.

Route 66 -  Coffee Break News
spacer (1K)

Here it is... April already, and we welcome another season of Route 66 travellers to Seligman, Arizona!  Last month we encouraged our readers to consider Seligman as a destination because of the affordability of its clean comfortable rooms.   Keep in mind that Seligman is a 3-hour drive from Las Vegas as well as a 3-hour drive from Phoenix.  Seligman is also situated about 2 hours from The Grand Canyon.

Seligman also offers tourists a wonderful restaurant selection.  This includes homemade pizza at The Stage Coach Route 66 Motel's Pizza Joint, a full menu at the Copper Cart, chargrilled entrees at The RoadKill Cafe, and Westside Lilo's German and American food.  Enjoy the famous burgers at The Snow Cap or a light meal at J&R's Mini-Mart.  You can also find quick meals at Seligman's A&W and Subway.

Our well-known trademarked espresso and gourmet coffee, along with muffins and light snacks are available at our full service coffee bar in The Historic Seligman Sundries.  We also offer delicious hand-dipped ice cream in our thick ice cream milk shakes and malts, and our single or double-scoop ice cream cones are a popular choice for ages of all kinds!  Fruit smoothies are also available in a variety of luscious fruit flavors.

When you have a chance, take a look at our website www.seligmansundries.com  to view photos of our town.

Also, we invite you to watch a video at  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Gx8DMkWOQs  featuring our establishment that you might have visited when travelling through Seligman.

Sincerely,

Frank and Lynne

Greetings from France
spacer (1K)
We had the pleasure of meeting many wonderful people visiting Seligman last summer, and one such family was Eric and his family from France.  Eric shared his experiences of travelling Route 66 with us... here is Eric's profile.

"About me. Well I'am a 41 years old french pilot who really love to have good time in the south west of USA. This is why we met each other last summer. We planned a great trip from San fransisco to Lax via Yosemite, Las Vegas, Page, and the route 66 to California.
My wife and my two kids (Thibault 12 and Clara 8) did enjoy a lot.
As I told you I do fly for Air France ( the great 777 ) and I can visit a lot of different places."

This past Fall Eric rented a private airplane and took the aerial photograph of Seligman which we've included in this newsletter.

Rancharoo Coffee - Organic Peruvian Dark Roast
spacer (1K)

We've added an organic coffee to our coffee menu. This organic coffee is a robust, dark roast Peruvian coffee.


We invite you to begin your morning with our newest blend – Rancharoo (rhymes with Buckaroo). This shade grown, organic coffee is cultivated at the highest altitudes of the Andes Mountains and offers a sweet medium body and medium acidity, making this coffee very special.  Rancharoo is wonderful as a breakfast brew or an after-dinner cup of coffee.

U.S.A. Flag History and Facts
spacer (1K)

In the next few issues, we will continue to present some interesting history and facts about our Unites States of America flag. This is the third in our series of articles:

On June 14, 1777, Congress made the following resolution: “The flag of the United States shall be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white, with a union of thirteen stars of white on a blue field ...” Official announcement of the new flag was not made until September 3, 1777. When it was first flown has not been determined. Historical research has failed to establish a factual foundation for the traditional story that the flagmaker Betsy Ross made the first American flag.

As in the past, we will start the festivities in Seligman on Friday with registration, music, entertainment, and checking out the sights of Seligman.

Saturday morning the vehicles will start to line up in Seligman in preparation for the start of the FUN RUN to Kingman. Since this is not a timed event please feel free to stop along the way to enjoy refreshments, western dance, sample the Hualapai Tribe BBQ and check out the other vehicles as they cruise by.

Upon arrival in Kingman sometime in the afternoon we will be lining up the vehicles (not only cars but busses, vans, cycles and RVs) on Route 66 and at the Powerhouse for viewing and fun judging. Entertainment, activities and vendors all day. Evening activities, downtown Kingman activities and entertainment sponsored by the Downtown Merchants Association.

Sunday morning the vehicles will line up for the run to Topock/Golden Shores for the final get-together and awards. Again, not a timed run so there is plenty of time to stop along the way with Oatman being a fun place. We promise to have each and every burro in the neighborhood on the hoof to meet and greet our FUN RUNNERS.

On a rainy and cold Saturday in April we were visited by the lively group of Germans led by Hans and Angie Mantler. We enjoyed their company and enthusiasm despite adverse weather conditions.

The flag is usually displayed from sunrise to sunset in the open. It should be raised briskly and lowered ceremoniously. It is displayed daily, weather permitting, and especially on certain holidays, on or near the main administration buildings of all public institutions.

Chloride  - A living Ghost Town - an Arizona secret
spacer (1K)

After many of our visitors have soaked up the sights in Seligman they are ready to head to Las Vegas. At the mid point from Seligman to Las Vegas (about a three hour trip from Seligman to Las Vegas) is a quaint, quirky and cool town called Chloride. Chloride is just four miles off Highway 93 in northwest Arizona. It is the oldest continuosly inhabited mining town in the state. At one time 2,500 people and over 70 silver and lead mines once prospered. Now about 400 folks call this living ghost town home.

The World Famous - Black Cat Bar
spacer (1K)

The Black Cat Bar is one of Northern Arizona's most storied institutions. This famous cowboy hangout, situated directly on Historic Route 66 in the middle of the town of Seligman, boasts of the 4th oldest liquor license in the state.  The nostalgia of the Black Cat dates back to the heyday of the railroad and the huge surrounding cattle ranches.

On any given day you'll find tourists, local folks, and even cowboys from surrounding ranches, gathered to partake of a cold beer or favorite drink, play a friendly game of pool, or just hang out.  Often you'll find a lively country band playing, with the tables pushed back so folks can enjoy dancing and just having a good time.  This is also the place where the town folk get together once a month to celebrate all the birthdays and anniversaries for that month. 

The Black Cat is also actively involved in many community activities, and hosts the Predator Hunt each spring and supports the Route 66 Fun Run Car Rally each May, Seligman Days, the annual Chicken Fry, and other events throughout the year. Anyone passing through the town of Seligman shouldn't miss the opportunity to stop and visit this friendly, beloved Black Cat Bar!


Be sure to stop in if you have the opportunity! The Black Cat is across the street from The Historic Seligman Sundries.

Seligman continues to be the destination for many Route 66 enthusiasts. We welcome the re-opening of the village of Supai which has been closed since last summer's flood.  Much work went into cleanup and repair to open for this summer's tourist season.

The Brothers of The Third Wheel were in Seligman for the Memorial Day Holiday weekend (May 25th). We enjoyed their company and also their traditional evening light parade.  Next year will be their 15th anniversary to return to Seligman for the Memorial Day weekend.

On June 27th, The Desert Road Riders Motorcycle Club from Bullhead City will host their 16th annual Great Escape Rally in Seligman.  For details, visit
www.desertroadriders.com.

Memorial Day in Seligman was highlighted by a flag-raising tribute to military personnel. We were honored to have Navajo Code Talker Sam Tsosie Sr. as our special guest.  Navajo Code Talkers participated in numerous battles in the Pacific, including Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, Peleliu and Tarawa.  Photos and highlights of the Memorial Day ceremony can be viewed on
www.route66patriot.com.

Congratulations to the 11 graduating seniors from Seligman High School!

Wedding Bells Ring in Seligman
spacer (1K)

Travelers visit Seligman for many reasons.  Some are on their way east to the Grand Canyon, others are heading westward to Las Vegas, but everyone considers Seligman a nostalgic stop on Route 66.

Seligman is also a special destination for some people.  Just ask Bob and Beverly Seligman from Cheyenne, Wyoming.  For several months, Bob finalized plans to marry Beverly in Seligman, the unique town that bears the same name as his family.  On May 15, 2009, Bob and Beverly were married at the Seligman Justice Court.  They extended their stay in Seligman from 2 to 4 days to fully experience our town.  They told us that their stay at The Canyon Lodge www.route66canyonlodge.com  was memorable.

Best Wishes to the Seligmans!!

Coffee Facts:

  • It is estimated that coffee originated in an Ethiopian province called Kaffa. But, there is controversy about where it originated. Coffee first became trendy in Arabia during the 13th century. Coffee trees were grown in India sometime after 1600, and some around 1650 coffee was imported in to England and coffee houses opened in London and Oxford.

    Coffee was popular by the 18th century in Europe and European colonists introduced the crop to other tropical countries to help them supply a healthy domestic demand. The demand for coffee was so strong in the 19th century that when authentic coffee beans were limited, people developed substitutes from vegetables like, chicory root, acorns and figs.

Route 66 "Route Beer"
spacer (1K)

Root beer, the original American soft drink, is only 100 years younger than the nation itself.  Root beer has a long and eventful history that coincides with the development of American popular culture.

Root beer was first manufactured in Philadelphia in 1866.  Prior to this, farm people of the 18th and 19th centuries had been making some sort of elementary root beer.

In 1876, root beer made its debut at the U.S. Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia along with Alexander Graham Bell's telephone, the Remington typewriter and Heinz Ketchup.

There is only one original Route 66 "Route" Beer bottled in the USA under the authority of Route 66 Sodas, LLC.

Ask your favorite retailer for this product. The root beer's award winning taste and the souvenir bottle with a twist-off cap is a collector's item.  Call us at 928-853-0051 if you need assistance finding a retailer in your location.

"Seligman is like coming home".  This is a comment from a frequent visitor and good friend to Seligman, Hermann Reuther from Germany.  Recently Hermann was leading one of his unforgettable adventure tours from Chicago to Los Angeles on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle and took time to talk with us during his stop in Seligman.  According to Hermann, Seligman is the town everyone is searching for... the town where time stands still.  The main reasons Hermann looks forward to his "Seligman experience" are the friendly people, clean accommodations and good food.  Precisely at 7:00am on June 20th the roar of Harley engines started and his eager group departed from The Canyon Lodge  www.route66canyonlodge.com on their way to Westside Lilo's for breakfast before heading out on the last part of their journey to Los Angeles.

The first coffee shop opened in 1475.

The Arabs brought coffee back to the Middle East. By 1100 AD, they had learned to cultivate coffee plants, and brewed a thick, bitter beverage by roasting and then boiling the seeds. The Arabs named their beverage “qahwa”.

Coffee consumption spread to India, Greece and Turkey. The world’s first coffee shop, Kiva Han, opened in Constantinople in 1475.  At that time, a Turkish woman could legally divorce her husband if he failed to provide her with the proper quota of coffee.

We invite you to join us for your favorite coffee drink at our coffee bar.

U.S.A. Flag History and Facts
spacer (1K)

In the next few issues, we will continue to present some interesting history and facts about our Unites States of America flag. This is the sixth in our series of articles:

 The 49- and 50-star unions

When Alaska and Hawaii were being considered for statehood in the 1950s, more than 1,500 designs were spontaneously submitted to President Dwight D Eisenhower.  Although some of them were 49-star versions, the vast majority were 50-star proposals.  At least three, and probably more, of these designs were identical to the present design of the 50-star flag.  At the time, credit was given by the executive department to the United States Army Institute of Heraldry for the design.

Of these proposals, one created by 18-year old Robert G. Heft in 1958 as a school project has received the most publicity.  His mother was a seamstress, but refused to do any of the work for him.  He originally received a B- for the project.  After discussing the grade with his teacher, it was agreed (somewhat jokingly) that if the flag was accepted by Congress, the grade would be reconsidered.  Heft's flag design was chosen and adopted by presidential proclamation after Alaska and before Hawaii was admitted into the union in 1959.  He got an A.

Distinguished For His Strength
spacer (1K)

Norberto - translated means "distinguished for his strength".  That accurately describes Norberto De Angelis, the 45-year old Italian athlete completing his journey on Route 66 by handbike.  In 1992, Norberto was in a life-changing accident leaving him in a wheelchair. This inspritional, former American-style Italian football player rose to his challenge of being disabled to become an inspiration for all disabled people.

On June 28th we met Norberto as he was travelling from Chicago to Los Angeles by handbike. The smiling, confident Norberto launched Progetto 6 six (project Route 66) two months ago. Roberto is a true Italian hero and someone who needs to be saluted.  We feel privileged to have met him!

www.norbertodeangelis.com  details Norberto's journey and is a truly inspirational story.

" Agli amici Lynne and Frank. Un sincereo saluto e grazie per l'ospitalita"   #99 - Norberto De Angelis.

Germans and Coffee

Kaffee-Kantate, or Coffee Cantata

Bach wrote his Kaffee-Kantate, or Coffee Cantata, in response to an anti-coffee movement in Germany. In the eighteenth century, experts claimed that coffee caused sterility in women, and was harmful to young people and generally bad for one’s health. Artists responded with biting satirical works.

Best known for his uplifting church compositions, Bach flexed his funny bone for the Kaffee-Kantate. A father tries to convince his stubborn teenage daughter, Lieschen, to kick the coffee habit. The girl insists that without coffee, she’ll dry up like a roasted goat.

“Ah! How sweet coffee tastes,” she cries. “Lovelier than a thousand kisses, sweeter far than muscatel wine! I must have my coffee!”Good taste prevailed, and the afternoon ritual of coffee and cake (Kaffee und Kuchen) is still an important part of German culture today.

We invite you to join us for your favorite coffee drink at our coffee bar.

U.S.A. Flag History and Facts
spacer (1K)


 40 Years ago

Where were you on June 20th 1969?

The deployment of the flag of the United States on the surface of the Moon is captured on film during the first Apollo 11 lunar landing mission. Here, astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, commander, stands on the left at the flag's staff. Astronaut Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr., lunar module pilot, is also pictured. The picture was taken from film exposed by the 16mm Data Acquisition Camera (DAC) which was mounted in the Lunar Module (LM). While astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin descended in the Lunar Module (LM) "Eagle" to explore the Sea of Tranquility region of the Moon, astronaut Michael Collins, command module pilot, remained with the Command and Service Modules (CSM) "Columbia" in lunar-orbit.

Grand Canyon  Caverns
Route 66 - 30 minutes west of Seligman
spacer (1K)

 

This article was submitted by John McEnulty.

My friend Hilda took her adult children for a vacation at Grand Canyon Caverns.  The thing they especially wanted to do was go horseback riding.  I told them to be prepared for great riding over a large property with a forest and several 360 degree view mesa locations.  Enough said, I thought.  They are city folks and came back raving about their outing.  They said I didn't explain how big 1,400 acres is with another million acres across the road (Route 66).

Hilda says it's important to know that you ride cross country, not in a dusty line on an overused horse trail.  Birds and small animals are everywhere with occassional elk sightings, too.  Our land has not been logged since 1940, so we have a beautiful forest to ride in with a huge variety of plant life. There's no removal of trees or plants on this "No Hunting" property so you really see nature at work undisturbed. There is great hunting nearby.

Hilda and I both agree the sunset ride is as close to the "Old West" as most of us will ever get.  Our wonderful cowboy family matches each person to the right horse and joins in for safe and guided trips to unique corners of our Grand Canyon Cavernsworld.  There are also half hour, hour, two hour and half day rides...We'll invent a ride that suits you...at a price city horse back rides have not seen in more than a decade.

Come saddle up with us !  -  John McEnulty

"On The Road Again"  -  Destination Seligman
spacer (1K)

No, not Willie Nelson - we're talking about Bill and Kathy Maier from Guthrie,Oklahoma.  Look for the bright red, spotless 2007 Freightliner adorned with Route 66 plates and decals, travelling Route 66. Seligman, Arizona is their favorite stop.  About three times a month we see Bill and Kathy on their trips from Oklahoma to San Francisco.

Bill travels as much of Route 66 as he can with the one definite stretch - Seligman to Kingman - being his favorite.  Bill spent his boyhood in the Route 66 town of Edmond, Oklahoma. He especially remembers the "Wide Awake Cafe".  After 26 years in radio in Oklahoma City and also owning a diner in Guthrie, Oklahoma, in 1990 he hit the road.  During the past year, Kathy, his wife of 39 years, has been able to share his adventures travelling with him.

Although they travel about 3,700 miles a week, they scheduled their trip to stay in Seligman  (see photos of Elvis room - Canyon Lodge)  and be in our Seligman Days parade on July 18th.  What an attraction and significance having him roll through town with us since Route 66 represents the transportion of commerce.

When you see Bill on The Road, encourage him to sound his horn if you are not in a town with a noise ordinance. You'll think a freight train is coming down the road!

Jeffrey Seligman Visits
spacer (1K)

On July 19th, another Seligman gentleman visited us.  While attending the Williams, Arizona Hamfest, Jeffrey drove the 45 minutes to see his name  "Seligman" on signs all over town.  An engineer/computer consultant for Microsoft in Tucson, Jeffrey shared some of the details of his Bavarian heritage with us during his visit to our store.

As far as Jeffrey knows, he is the only Seligman living in Arizona.  He started the Radio Society of Tucson in 1993 and is now a P.H.D. candidate at The University of Arizona.  Call him at K2VNT.

Czech Republic Visitors
spacer (1K)

This year there have been many visitors from The Czech Republic.  We have proudly displayed the signed flag from these two happy travelers.  Thanks!

Many visitors from Czech Republic are impressed by the fact that Arizona is 295,254 square kilometers (113,998 square miles)  and Czech Republic is 79,000 square kilometers. Despite the fact that Arizona is four times the size of Czech Republic, the population of Czech Republic is 10.3 million and the population of Arizona is 6.5 million with one third of that population in the Phoenix metropolitan area. The population estimate of Seligman is 500 residents in town and about 1,000 total within a 25-mile radius.

Takove misto plne pohody a sympatickych lidi neni nikde jinde na svete. Jsme nadseni!!! Dekujeme a prejeme stesti.

Route 66 for Abruzzo
spacer (1K)
There is a variety of travelers on Route 66, each traveling for different reasons.  On July 22,  Alessandro and Xavier from the Italian region of Abruzzo arrived in Seligman.  Here is their story in their own words:

Barisciano, a small village in the Italian region of Abruzzo, was heavily affected by the earthquake of past the 6th of April.
The local church went seriously damaged too. The people of the village do not have a place of worship where they can pray in this moment of terrible sufferance.
 
Who we are:
“Route 66 for Abruzzo” is an apolitical and non-profit association, formed by professionals who decided to devote for free their time and experience to help the society 
 
What we want to do:
Goal of “Route 66 for Abruzzo” is to raise funds to allow the Alpinis to start the construction of a new church.
The project of the new building will be made and donated by Bianca Maria Ceriello, architect, as well as member of the committee.

On the 11th of July, Alessandro and Xavier, the two riders of the association,  departed for a 4,000 kilometers trip along the Historic Route 66 in the U.S.A.  Along the road they will meet groups of riders and associations who will support us in this initiative. Every day they will narrate their trip in the website and the blog with pictures, videos and articles.  In this way they will allow the community to virtually travel with them.

To everybody who will follow them in this special journey, they will offer a true story of an adventure 4,000 km long and populated by all the people encountered along the way.

Neighbors To The North - Eh!
spacer (1K)

Shawn, Deanna, Sydney and Allysa from Edson, Canada included Seligman in their travels this year.  Staying at the Seligman KOA campground for three days in July, they used Seligman as their base for day trips which included the Grand Canyon.

We enjoyed seeing their smiling faces as they shared their good experiences while exploring our corner of Arizona. They usually take a trip to visit their southern neighbor once a year. We wish them a safe journey and thank them for letting us be a part of their Seligman experience.

Seligman, Arizona - Your Route 66 Favorite
spacer (1K)

Seligman, Arizona was founded in 1886 at the junction of the railroad from Prescott to the Santa Fe Railroad's main line. It was known as Prescott Junction until it was renamed after Jesse Seligman, a prominent New York banker responsible for financing railroad construction and companies. The railroad played a big part of Seligman's community for the next hundred years by establishing repair facilities and the famous Harvey House.

Many Uses For Coffee

Coffee saved the wedding day when Marilyn Monroe married playwright Arthur Miller in 1956.  Marilyn planned to wear a cream-colored wedding gown.  The day before the wedding, she discovered to her chagrin that her veil was pure white and didn’t match the gown.

Marilyn was no dumb blonde.  She dunked her veil in strong coffee.  When she married Miller the next day, the bride wore her beautiful cream gown with matching coffee-dyed veil.

We invite you to join us for your favorite coffee drink at our coffee bar.

According to legend, when George Washington asked Betsy Ross to sew the country's flag, the sketch that he showed her had a flag with 6-pointed stars. Betsy convinced him that 5-pointed stars were better because she was able to fold a piece of cloth in a way that resulted in a perfect 5-point star with a single snip of the scissors. Betsy died on January 30, 1836, at the age of 84. Old Glory is one of the most complicated flags in the world, requiring 64 pieces of fabric to make. It's also changed designs more than any other flag in the world.

The American Legion Post 123 meets the third Saturday of the month in Seligman at 3:00P.M.

So few people ever make it to the depths of The Grand Canyon. Sure it's great to stand on the rim at the National Park...But what is it like down below? The average visitor with one day for the adventure of a lifetime can now feel and see the inner canyon and all its glory.  Grand Canyon Old West Jeep Tours launches explorations into Grand canyon Caverns and to the mighty
 Colorado River at the bottom of The Grand Canyon every day.

If you live to be 100, you'll never forget this day.  Call 1-800-716-9389 for information.

Route 66 by Horse
Really Getting Your Kicks
spacer (1K)

Some people really know how to travel Route 66 in style.  That is what Mike Snodgrass & Debbie Albrech are doing.  This congenial and easygoing team left Tulsa on August 20th, 2008 with a West Coast destination.  Travelling 15 to 20 miles a day with three horses named Angel, Spot and Dodger (one used as a pack horse which is rotated every day), they passed through Seligman on August 12th, almost one year since they left Tulsa.  "If you can do it, DO IT", said Mike as he sat on a hay bale in front of Historic Seligman Sundries.

Personally, Mike and Debbie wanted to prove that they could do it.  They spend 2 hours each morning and evening feeding and caring for the well-maintained horses.  Each horse requires about 25 gallons of water a day, and Mike shoes the horses every 20 to 25 days.  Mike does some cowboying along the way, just taking the trip one day at a time.

They find many people that they meet curious and also helpful. Oh, by the way, in the saddle with Mike is their ranch dog.  "Bob is her name, " said Mike.

Seligman's Visit Seligman
spacer (1K)

Here's a story of a family vacation that included taking a tour of Historic Route 66, rafting down the Colorado River, and visiting a town where your name is prominently displayed.

That is what Randy, Elliot, Olivia and Audrey Seligman did the first week of August.  The New York family from Chappaqua, New York walked into The Historic Seligman Sundries, proudly stating that their surname is SELIGMAN.  This was the family's first visit toSeligman, Arizona.  Elliot is a psychologist, and Randy is a professional photographer in New York.  Our visit with this charming family made for a very pleasant experience.

Forty three years ago Elliott and three friends drove through Seligman in the summer in their VW Bug.  Remember - no air conditioning (it was summer).  Cozy??  "Don't wait another forty years!!" exclaimed Elliot.

According to Elliot, " I love the town and am proud to share the name".

Do you want to go on a tour, go camping, have social interaction with your fellow travelers, and forego the normal comforts associated with travelling?  If the answer is yes to all of these, then you want to join a Rotel Tour.  We have had the pleasure of meeting Martina as she escorted her German tourists on her 16-day tour of the Southwest.  Los Angeles, San Francisco, Yosemite, Las Vegas, Bryce Canyon, The Grand Canyon, and of course, Seligman on Historic Route 66 were some of the highlights of the tour.

This unique company, which has been operating tours for over 50 years, offers tours in 130 countries. There are accommodations for 23 people to live on the bus. The passengers also are served breakfast and dinner. On this particular tour, Joseph is the driver, mechanic, and chef.  He definitely is a genuine multi-tasker!!

Heidi, a seasoned traveler, was relaxing in front of the store drinking her cappuccino when she told us that this was her 15th tour.  She is 66 years old and travelling Route 66 on her 5th trip to The United States. She said, "I like it all, especially the friendliness of Americans."

From Martina, the guide:  "Wir sind Hier Gerne Unterwegs!"

American Legion Post 123 - Seligman, Arizona
spacer (1K)
 

We would like to recognize Seligman's American Legion for the community service they provide. One of the major contributions to the community is the weekly distribution of food from their food bank which averages 66 families in the Seligman and Ashfork communities. Volunteers pick up food from Prescott Valley and Flagstaff at their own expense weekly to distribute food at The American Legion.  Theirs is quite a charitable endeavor.

The American Legion also collected a sizeable donation for Corporal Tyrell Manakaja from Seligman who was is recuperating in the hospital from injuries he recieved while serving in Iraq.

Commander Joseph Kanakiewicz has also initiated a program to distribute drug awareness pamphlets to Seligman High School. A hearty thanks to Joe for his charitable contibutions to the community!

"The people in Seligman, Arizona make it the best town on Route 66".  This is a quote from Dirk Goetz from Barcelona, Spain.  This enthusiastic gentleman spent a night in Seligman to capture some of the local flavor and photos for his travel documentary about Route 66.  His 4-week journey throughout the Southwest is something that he thinks everyone should do once in a lifetime.

Dirk is an actor, photographer and businessman in Barcelona who enjoyed his stay in "The Elvis Room" at The Canyon Lodge in Seligman. We look forward to viewing his photos and comments about Seligman.

"Animo a todo el mundo a experimentar por una vez en la vida este viaje. Sin lujar a dudas sereis mejores personas."

Honeymoon Japanese Style
spacer (1K)

 

Three years ago, Kota from Yokosuska, Japan travelled Route 66 through Seligman. Kota had the large Route 66 flag that he is holding in the photo signed at all of his stops. This Route 66 fan married Hitomi in Yokaham, Japan on August 8th of this year. Their honeymoon is a journey down Route 66.  The large Route 66 flag that Hitomi is holding is the new flag being signed as they travel The Route together on their 10-day journey.

Kota is a Second Mate Navigation Officer on an oil tanker.  From Kota,. "Good day, we have many happy miles on Route 66. Our honeymoon is happy".   "Konnichiha. Hanemun de kimashito. route 66 ha seiko - desu. Zehi minas anmo kite kudasaine!!"

Seligman, Arizona - Your Route 66 Favorite
spacer (1K)

Seligman, the birthplace of Historic Route 66, is a small, unincorporated town situated in the beautiful Upland Mountains of Northern Arizona.  In 1987, the State of Arizona dedicated old U.S. 66 from Seligman to Kingman as Historic Route 66, due to the efforts of local business people. The dedication will assure the preservation of the longest remaining stretch of old Route 66 left in the United States.

Coffee Facts
spacer (1K)

Coffee Trees

The coffee plant grows from the seed, or bean, and takes three to four years to flower. At five or six years, it yields its first batch of coffee.

Firm green berries grow in clusters along the branches, and ripen into bright red fruit, called coffee cherries. Inside each coffee cherry are two beans. If only one bean grows inside the cherry, it’s called a peaberry.

The average yield of a coffee tree translates to one or two pounds of roasted coffee a year. The tree can grow to forty feet, but most coffee plants are trimmed to a comfortable picking height. Cherries ripen individually, so most coffee is picked by hand.

We invite you to join us for your favorite coffee drink at our coffee bar.

Route 66 Patriot Lynn Searles
spacer (1K)

A Flag Raising was conducted September 11th. 2009 at Historic Seligman Sundries. The featured speaker was a Seligman resident, Lynn Searles.  Here are excerpts from her speech:

"My name is Lynn Searles, and I'm from Connecticut, one hour outside of New York.  As we stand here on the 8th anniversary of 9/11, the first plane has already hit the first tower.  I witnessed 9/11 first hand...

No one could fathom what you saw on TV was not nearly what you saw at Ground Zero.  I was a Red Cross Volunteer, American Heart Association Volunteer, Hospice Volunteer, and Bereavement Counselor.  I was picked to run a relief van from Connecticut to New York for the recovery workers... 

Patriotism came together on that day 9/11.  New beginnings for the United States.  An understanding that everyone, no matter what your background was, you were a citizen of the U.S.A., Home of the Brave...

I came to Seligman three years ago.   In Seligman it was the first time I felt the same Patriotism.  A melting pot of people, not unlike New York.  Whether you need a smile, a hug, or just a hello.  So to the people of Seligman and the rest of the world... Rock on, Love this Country and GOD BLESS!!!!"
