July 10, 1990, Missouri became the first state to award the highway historic status and legislation was signed into law on the lawn of the Pulaski County Courthouse. The legislative bill, sponsored by Missouri State Representatives Jim Mitchell of Richland and J. Dan Woodall of Springfield, won unanimous support in the General Assembly. According to the City of Waynesville website, "On the day of the signing, Governor Ashcroft said he hoped the official designation would stir nostalgia and recreate interest in Route 66 and the small towns located along it. Governor Ashcroft's prediction, nearly 30 years ago, has been realized. Missouri's recognition of the Mother Road helped to spur the Route 66 survival."
