The Lincoln Highway

The Lincoln Highway was the first named automobile road that ran across the United States, spanning from Times Square in New York to Lincoln Park in San Francisco. It originally ran through 13 states and since 1928, a total of 14 states, 128 counties and over 700 cities, towns and villages covering 3,142 miles.

It was America's first national memorial to President Abraham Lincoln, and as the first automobile road across America, it brought great prosperity to the hundreds of cities, towns and villages along the way. The Lincoln Highway has become affectionately known as "the main street across America."
