Shortly after we completed our project with the National Road Association of Illinois, we were contacted by Central Illinois Tourism to do another road related project for the Illinois Route 66 Scenic Byway. This project would be a web series that would focus on the stories of those who have lived and worked along the Illinois portion of Route 66.
Our first subject was Ernie Edwards, a 94 year old Route 66 legend. He shared stories of his life along the Mother Road, and what it meant to be a part of American history.
Unfortunately Ernie passed away before the conclusion of the Route 66 stories project. We were honored to have the opportunity to share Ernie’s story.
We have filmed six Route 66 stories, with many more to come. Looking forward to sharing there stories soon!
