Route 66 shields come in many forms, there are giant murals, road signs, spray-painted roadways, and sculptures like this one: the FFA Route 66 Sign in Riverton, Kansas.

The Route 66 sculpture is a 20-foot-tall rendering of the recognizable Route 66 shield you will see in many forms across the route. Across the top is the word “Kansas” and the giant “66” is made from reused rust-colored hubcaps.

The sculpture is visible as you drive through a roundabout coming to or going from Galena (not far from Rainbow Bridge and Nelson’s Old Riverton Store). Pull over to the small parking area just beyond the sign and explore some informational kiosks on Route 66, Boom Towns, the Baxter Springs Massacre, and Fort Blair before walking through the grass to get to the sign.

Riverton FFA students came up with the idea for the sculpture, wanting to do something to promote local tourism. Under the supervision of FFA adviser Jacob Larison, it took about two years and $700 to complete. The Route 66 Byway Committee and Cherokee County gave $300 to the cause and Kansas DOT donated scrap metal and old hubcaps to use as material.

It was installed off the roundabout in April 2018 and quickly became one of the top Kansas Route 66 Attractions.
