The city of Winslow, Arizona falls along the former National Old Trails Highway that was established in 1914.  Once the U.S. Highway Numbers System was established, in 1956, the National Old Trails Highway was renamed to Route 66.  After, Route 66 was decommissioned in 1985, the road was renamed again to Old Route 66.

The Old Trails Museum, contains exhibits on the Hopi, Laguna, and Navajo Native Americans, in addition to the former pioneer Mormons who had once lived in the city.
