Sterling's Hillbilly Store: Historic Route 66

Sterling’s Hillbilly Store was a landmark for generations of families and travelers on The Mother Road near Hooker, Missouri in Pulaski County USA. The business adapted to the changes of Route 66 and was located in four different venues throughout the years. Today, the famous “Hillbilly” sign still greets drivers as they travel the Main Street of America at the Mule Trading Post in Phelps County. Members of the Wells family continue the family tradition of basket weaving and one of their baskets can be seen on display in an exhibit at the John B. Mahaffey Museum on Fort Leonard Wood.
