Overview: During the hey days of Route 66 a man named D.M. Barringer built an observatory just off of the Mother Road so that the many travelers passing by the area could see the crater without having to travel the additional six or so miles to the site. For just 25 cents, travelers could stand from the observation tower and see the crater through a telescope. Today the observatory is nothing but stone ruins, occupied by ravens. An interesting structure and area to stretch your legs if in the area.
