The same road that everybody seems to have forgotten is, perhaps, America’s most important road!
Begun with private (not government) efforts, built to create new roads and literally change the way America would travel forever...spawning restaurants, service stations, motels, even the American vacation...this road desperately needs its history preserved and its story told — and we are working hard to do it...but we need your support.
Become a FRIEND of the BYWAY and receive all this...a large Lincoln Highway poster, an official FRIEND membership certificate, a set of ODOT's Lincoln Highway Historic Byway post cards, an official color map/guide of the Byway in Ohio, and a dozen foil Lincoln Highway stickers!
(Allow up to a few weeks after ordering for your packet!)
An extensive byway corridor management plan was reviewed and accepted which included marketing, preservation, inventory of architecturally significant structures, historic monuments and sites, and other cultural, archeological, historical and recreational points of interest.
Since the Lincoln changed alignments from its beginnings in 1913 to 1928, ODOT chose to designate the 1928 route as the official byway.
However, the founding organization, chartered as a 501 (c) 3 under the name of the Ohio Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor (OLHHC), chose to include, promote and engage all interested parties on alignments in Ohio as the byway.
The belief of the OLHHC is that the "Lincoln" is more significant to American history than either Route 66 or the National Road--in its uniqueness of bringing forth the paradigm shift of the automobile transportation shift to America and the world. Its founders visualized, then brought to fruition, the creation of a robust network of automobile-driveable roads that lead America into the convenient connectivity we enjoy today.
