US 50

US Route 50 is one of our favorites. We lived near it in twice in the foothills of northern California. We lived near it in Delaware, and we have lived near it for the last 20 years in O’Fallon, Illinois. My first recollection of US Route 50 being different was a magazine article I read about Route 50 being named the “Loneliest Highway in the US.” Here’s a great website that shows why. Link.

If you have photos of US Route 50 please don’t hesitate to send them to me at
