The annual Ohio Lincoln Highway BUY-WAY Yard Sale will again offer just about anything for sale, whether found at a yard sale, garage sale, lawn sale or rummage sale along America’s first coast-to-coast road. There will be many other festive events at this time as well. Look for restaurants with specials, church festivals with their accompanying sales and local foods, car shows and cruise-ins across Ohio and neighboring states to add to the fun.
If you are looking for it, it's out there somewhere waiting for you to buy at a bargain price.,” said Mike Hocker, Ohio Lincoln Highway Historic Byway director.
A free Travelers Guide featuring a map of the byway's path (sometimes two parallel paths) across Ohio, will be available to travelers at businesses along the corridor. The official byway website, HYPERLINK "http://www.historicbyway.com" www.historicbyway.com, lists the locations where the guides will be available as well as many of the yard sale sites and other attractions, including restaurants and motels. Shoppers may also follow the byway's Facebook page.
"This three-day BUY-WAY Yard Sale has not only introduced people from all over the country to the history of our automotive beginnings, but it also provides an economic boost to the communities that participate, and it serves the thrifty side of all of us who find that bargain," Hocker added.
The BAD news is that you are just hoarding junk that you will never use again. The GOOD news is that by giving it to us, WE not only recycle it, but actually get money for that stuff! And that includes power cords, chargers, etc. So help the Lincoln Highway and grab those old cell phones and accessories and drop them off to your local convention bureau. (If there isn't one close to you on the list, email me at info[at]historicbyway.com and I will arrange a pickup! If you are really feeling energetic, you can send it to OLHHC, 127 Harding Way East, Galion, OH 44833.
So where can you drop these off right now? W to E in Ohio: Van Wert CVB (Convention and Visitors Bureau), Delphos Chamber, Cairo Library branch, Lima/Allen County CVB, Ada Public library, Forest/Jackson Public Library, Wyandot/Upper Sandusky Visitors Bureau, Bucyrus Chamber office, Galion Chamber office, Crestline ADVOCATE, Mansfield/Richland CVB, Wayne/Wooster CVB, and there will be more pickup places designated soon.
Thanks in advance for your help and support!
The mission of the Ohio Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor is to preserve, interpret and promote the Lincoln Highway. Our effort will strengthen education, increase tourism and encourage economic development along America's first coast-to-coast paved highway.In 1999, Ohio Lincoln Highway Association Director Bob Lichty of Canton joined with Main Street Galion, Ohio Director Mike Hocker and several convention and visitor bureau leaders to go one step further by promoting organized tourism, with the belief that as a commercial destination, travelers, shoppers and tourists could be better educated to this piece of American history.
A coming together of the Ohio Lincoln Highway League with this new "heritage Corridor" group became a good fit for both. This new organization, along with the official Ohio Department of Transportation's granting of an official byway status in February of 2004 became a great advantage for businesses along the Ohio Lincoln Highway Corridor.
Traditionally, businesses spent money and received benefits only on a 1 to 1 ratio, but because this organization is driven under the professional direction of convention and visitors bureaus (CVBs) across the state, members' ad dollars are maximized, and the message is much clearer and farther reaching.
Individuals interested in saving this great piece of American history should visit the website of the Ohio Lincoln Highway League. Businesses, chambers and CVBs, attractions and retailers interested in being a part of our mission should visit our information page.
