The Coming of Route "66"
1926
Ash Fork was a junction point of the Old Trails (Route 66) and the Grand Canyon - Nogales Highways (US 89), leading to the southern sections of the state.

Pictured is Lewis Ave. "Route 66" as it served as both west bound and east bound until the ?50's when Park Ave. assumed the east bound traffic. At this time Lewis and Park Avenues became one-way streets. The popular route and its many visitors have been the survival to many businesses.

Ash Fork has some business structures that are typical of the early automobile route, such as gas stations, motels, restaurants, and grocery store and gift shops to serve the traveling public. Some homes as well as business structures on the famous route are eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
