Long Description:
An easy afternoon drive on Old Highway 40 from Wentzville MO to Danville MO has a lot of history from the 50's back to t the Civil War often passed by now because of Interstate 70. Starting in Wentzville there is a
Lustron Home, that is next door to the old 7 Acres Motel, (visit link) followed by an old abandoned home, (visit link) . Next stop what little remains of an old Highway 40 truck stop, (visit link) followed by whats left of a couple vintage gas station, (visit link) (visit link) Ending the tour in Danville with 2 historical civil war era waymarks, the Baker Plantation and the Danville Female Academy, (visit link) (visit link)

I am sure there are some other existing waymarks along the way and opportunities to create some new waymarks.
