Another easy park and grab on the old Lincoln Highway. Bring your own pencil, as this contains log only. ( And a small FTF gift) Be sure to check out the marker for Willis Haskell and his part in the evolution of the American Highway.

In ten years, between 1915 and 1925, the United States went from having one named highway to having an unorganized and confusing system of named highways. They were primarily marked by painted colored bands on telephone poles. Sometimes, where several named highways shared a route, almost an entire pole would be striped in various colors. It was time for an organized national system of highways to be formed. A system of numbered highways.
