“Rediscover our automotive past by traveling the Lincoln Highway, America’s first transcontinental road, built in 1913 to encourage good roads for all. Travel through small charming towns and see early relics of the road that your grandparents knew!”
“Our mission is to preserve, interpret and promote the Lincoln Highway. Our effort will strengthen education, increase tourism and encourage economic development along America’s first transcontinental paved road.”
In 1999, Ohio Lincoln Highway Association National President Bob Lichty of Canton joined with Main Street Galion, Ohio Director Mike Hocker and several convention and visitor bureau leaders to gain Ohio byway status, with the belief that as a commercial by promoting commercial destinations, travelers, shoppers and tourists could be better educated to learn more about this piece of American history.
A coming together of Cooperation with the Ohio Lincoln Highway League, which comprises of three chapters of advocacy groups in Ohio with this new "heritage Corridor" group became a good fit for both created a new coalition to promote and advocate the history of the road.. This new partnership, 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 d Driven u Under the professional direction of convention and visitors bureaus (CVBs) across the state, members businesses’ ad dollars are maximized, and the message is much clearer and farther reaching about the history of the road.
Individuals interested in saving this great piece of American history should consider becoming a FRIEND of the BYWAY. 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 Membership page.

And thanks in advance for your support of Ohio’s Lincoln Highway Historic Byway as you drive down America’s first coast-to-coast highway!
You have a drawer with an old cell phone or two, I just know it. So did I. Then I donated that junk...
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.
