The Mill in Lincoln opened in 1929 on the original strip of Route 66.
Director of the Route 66 Scenic Byway, Geoff Ladd says in it's history it has been a bar and restaurant but it will be a museum highlighting the history of Route 66.
The grand reopening of The Mill will feature Governor Bruce Rauner at the event and he will participate in a bike blessing happening and Ladd indicates local leaders will of course be on hand to say a few words.
Ladd indicates once The Mill is open this weekend, the museum will be open from 1 pm to 4 pm Tuesday through Saturday and by appointment.
