Behind the trees to our left is the town of Farmersville. Settled during the mid-1800s by immigrants from Ireland, Germany, England, and France, it was originally called Little Dublin before being incorporated in 1893 as Farmersville. To our left, alongside the Interstate and in front of the overpass, is the now closed Art’s motel and Restaurant, a Route 66 icon that opened in 1937 and is in the Route 66 Hall of Fame. It closed just a few years ago.
