The Lincoln Highway was the first road to cross the entire continental United States spanning from New York to California. In the beginning, it was formed merely by aligning roads that were already in existence and later on newer roads were built and the route was straightened and made easier to navigate.
The Lincoln Highway Association which was formed in 1913 and then reorganized in 1992 has been working to educate people about this historic byway. One of my fellow LHA members has written a grant proposal and submitted it to the Pepsi Refresh Project which will reward grants to the 10 most popular ideas that are submitted. Here’s the letter that I received from Paul:
If you were to ask any of my real life friends, they would tell you that I’m a Lincoln Highway freak so I think that this idea is just absolutely awesome. I’ve traveled the LH from NYC to Nebraska and it’s my goal to someday make it along the rest of the route. I’m very fortunate to live only about 35 minutes from the Highway and I get down there as often as I can.
So, anyways, I hope that you’ll consider giving a nod to this idea and if you have any Lincoln Highway questions, I’ll try to answer those, too! Tomorrow when I’m not so tired I’ll try to post some pictures of my favorite places along the road.
