The Meteor City Trading Post is a souvenir shop on old Route 66. It opened in 1938. The building was replaced with this dome in 1979. There are also six teepees on the property. Meteor City , once known as Indian City, also has bragging rights to the world's longest map of Route 66 (100' long). The dome had been subject to several fires over the years and the map was covered with billboard advertising. The building, map, and teepees were restored in 2002 through the Hampton Inn Save-A-Landmark program. Meteor Crater, a popular tourist destination, is about six miles away.
