Texas-shaped Marker in Shamrock, Texas on Route 66

According to a series of updates on Route 66 News, a Texas-shaped stone slab, known as the Texola Monument once stood at the side of the road on the border between Oklahoma and Texas on Route 66. The Texas sign was encased in a stone brick base and welcomed travelers as they crossed the state line. In 1965, when Interstate 40 was completed, the Texas marker was moved across the way and, later, donated to Shamrock when it was to be replaced. Unfortunately, while it was being moved, the original Texas sign broke. But later, a new monument was created and installed at the the Conoco Tower Station and U-Drop Inn Café in Shamrock, Texas.
