The Normandy, near Buckhorn, was a favorite eating place for locals, as well as Route 66 travelers. The restaurant, hotel, and gas station complex was razed circa 1978. A quarry is on the site now. The pillars that marked the entrance to The Normandy are still visible on the south side of the road close to the turnoff for the Pulaski County – Fort Leonard Wood Shrine Club.
