  1. From the album: US-6 - The Longest Highway

    Leaving Cape Cod on US-6. Though the bridge hasn't changed much since it was build in the 1930s, the rotary at the west end was replaced a few years ago by a standard freeway interchange.

  2. From the album: US-6 - The Longest Highway

    Sandwich is the hometown of the author of the Peter Cottontail stories, Thornton W. Burgess. He started writing these about 1914, and you can learn more about him and his books at the Thornton W. Burgess Museum here. The museum was opened in this house on an old mill pond, not previously owned by Mr. Burgess, in 1976 by the Thornton W. Burgess Society. Mr. Burgess was still alive in 1962, though he was no longer publishing.

  3. From the album: US-6 - The Longest Highway

    Up until 1959, you could take a train from Boston or New York to Hyannis, Massachusetts. There was no year-round passenger service between 1959 and 1986, when Amtrak began running trains again. Even that service has ceased, but tourist day trip service has been available sporadically under different railroad names since. Today the Cape Cod Central Railroad provides both scenic and dinner trains. The same tracks used in 1962 pass cranberry bogs, sand dunes, and historic villages, roughly paralleling US-6.

  4. From the album: US-6 - The Longest Highway

    The Wellfleet Drive-In Theatre has been here since 1957. Though the sound system has been updated, some of the parking spots still have the original Mono speakers for nostalgic listening pleasure. The business has grown over the years, with a four screen movie theater, restaurant, and mini-golf. I love miniature golf and even owned a portable mini-golf business once. This course is a 1961 vintage 18-hole course with the original obstacles, so how could I resist!

    US-6 Beginning

    From the album: US-6 - The Longest Highway

    No, you're eyes do not deceive you. US-6 sports some of these signs that you are more used to seeing along US-66. This one is at the beginning of the highway, outside of Provincetown, Massachusetts.
