Devils Elbow, Missouri is one of the most scenic areas along  Route 66 and is a hidden gem travelers from all over the world spend time.   The community of Devils Elbow is a like a page out of history,  the decades slip away to another, simpler time, far from the noise and bustle of the Interstate. During the 1930s and 1940s Devils Elbow was a resort community with cabins, canoes, and the famous Munger Moss Sandwich Shop which is now the famous Elbow Inn & BBQ Pit, nestled along the Big Piney River.  As travelers cross the river on the 1923 Steel Bridge in the hamlet of Devils Elbow, much remains the same to include Sheldon's Market and Post Office.  Many travelers stop to mail off postcards with the Devils Elbow postmark.  Today you are still able to overnight in cabins or take a float along the Big Piney River.

You are able to still drive on the original 1926 and some of the 1929 pavement of Route 66 through this area of Pulaski County's 33 miles of the Route.    In 1945 the four-lane road was cut through the ridge which by-passed Hooker and Devils Elbows, this cut is known as Hookers Pass.  Download our Print, online and audio tour to enhance your experience along Pulaski County's 33 miles of Route 66.

The community got its start back in 1870 and was named for a particularly bad bend in the Big Piney River. Lumberjacks would float logs down the river where a  large boulder would cause the logs to jam up.  They swore this bolder was put there by the devil himself just to cause them grief. 

Work began in the fall of 2013 to renovate the 1923 Steel Bridge with several blog articles written about this beautiful piece of Route 66 history.  (https://pulaskicountyusa.wordpress.com/2013/10/24/a-new-chapter-for-the-devils-elbow-bridge/.)  Residents of the community were energized to begin an annual holiday lighting of the bridge and is a must see between Thanksgiving and New Years.
