Adrian, Texas

Adrian began in 1900 when the Rock Island Railroad survey marked the site as a future station and shipping point. The railroad ran along the Ozark Trail, which later became Route 66, creating an economic boon for this tiny agricultural community for decades until Interstate 40 bypassed the town.

Adrian is the geo-mathematical midpoint of Route 66, and the town’s motto is, “When you’re here, you’re halfway there.” Today, travelers visit from all over the country to take their photo in front of the sign that reads, “1,139 miles to Chicago - 1,139 miles to Los Angeles.”
