As in many places along the Route 66, always impresses by the murals. Those of Tucumcari are very well preserved . .

Great to see as you travel through Tucumcari as part of route 66. Bit of nostalgia and tell the story of route 66.

I also lived in Tucumcari and so did my mother's family. Many are buried in Tucumcari Memorial Park. I loved the city and think the murals are not even close to what would be termed graffiti.
