More Good News for Route 66 – The Mother Road?

Bristow may be home to only a few of the 2,400 plus miles of Route 66,  but its role in the heritage of our town has been a big one. Now new legislation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives may just spark a major renewal of The Mother Road - in our case Main Street Bristow. Here's the story from the website TheConversation.com

Out of Town Guests? What To Do, What To Do?

Many of us in and around Bristow have the occasion to host out of town friends or family, and sometimes 'housing' them all can be a challenge. Family reunions, graduation celebrations or whatever, having some fun alternatives to a sterile (let's hope) motel room can be a real plus in making their stay more enjoyable. And believe it or not, Bristow actually has several great options to consider.

Christmas Unwrapped Creates Major Rift With Bristow Historical Society

I just read the statement from the Bristow Chamber of Commerce on Facebook. As most of you likely know, both the Bristow Chamber and the Bristow Historical Society (and its museum) share the space in the Depot, leasing said space from the City of Bristow. The statement from the Chamber concludes that should the Historical Society fail to vacate their space for the 3 months tied to the Christmas Unwrapped event, that the Chamber will suffer significant financial difficulties and likely would just dissolve the organization. Sadly, also mentioned was the likelihood of all the Chamber events being cancelled should the Chamber fold up its tent.
