Route 66 in South Pasadena

Oaklawn Bridge

1906 Oaklawn Bridge The Oaklawn Bridge and Waiting Station was one of our country’s first reinforced concrete bridges. It was designed by architects Charles and Henry Greene in 1906 and actually predates Route 66 by twenty years. It is a fine example of art and function and the City of South Pasadena knew that. Thanks to their efforts this bridge has been restored and will remain to remind generations to come what life was like back in the "Good Old Days" of the early twentieth century. I could just picture old Model-Ts crossing this one!

Meet a Part of Route 66's Future: Lauren Tom

LaurenTom and Jim Conkle

A highlight of our time spent at the Oaklawn Bridge was Lauren Tom, a third grader at South Pasadena’s Marengo Elementary School. She and her father dropped by for the festivities because she is doing a project on local history, which includes Route 66 through her town. Yes, these are the kids that are learning at an early age to appreciate the irreplaceable treasures we have in our historical sites. Our future of historic preservation depends on these kids. Way to go Lauren!
