SHAMROCK --- For such a small town, Shamrock has a lot of history. The town was founded in 1903 and began booming when Route 66 was built. Shamrock even has the tallest water tower of its kind in the state. A plaza was recently constructed around the tower and its been declared a historical monument. The town is also famous for their St. Patricks Day celebration every year. And if you really want the luck of the Irish, you can take a peek at a chip of the Blarney Stone in the park.
