Description:
The Lincoln Highway was the first road across America. It spanned almost 3400 miles, coast-to-coast, from Times Square in New York City to Lincoln Park in San Francisco. This category seeks to waymark the unique pieces of Americana and history that still lie along this supplanted route.

Beautiful 19th century church along the Lincoln Highway and situated at the town's center square. As the lure, popularity and of course traffic grew, so did the church, which was only about 25 years old when the highway first passed through here.
