The town of Centralia, PA caught fire in 1962 and was subsequently demolished around 1990. Not much was left behind. The highway that ran through town was rerouted and old Route 61 became known as Graffiti Highway. I reviewed Google Street view before visiting and noticed that the images provided were woefully out of date. This iconic attraction deserved an update on Google Maps.

Here is a quick aerial shot to lend some perspective to the project and location:

Getting Graffiti Highway on the map:

Street View before visit – a few disconnected spherical panoramas from multiple sources scattered around the map (click to enlarge)

Shortly after initial upload – lots of fresh 360 photo spheres show up (click to enlarge)

Final Result – After 24 hours the blue line is established and navigable through Street View: (click to enlarge)
