Long Description:
Originally, Rt 66 followed E. Jackson Blvd., which was a 2 way street. When it was converted to one way east bound, along with Adams St. just to the north being converted to one way west bound, the powers-that-be decided to call this spot the "end" and Adams the "beginning". I guess there must be a similar point in California called - the "middle" :)
