Hatcher Library exhibit tells story of America's Main Street, the Lincoln Highway

Sunday, August 4, 2013

“On the Road: Celebrating 100 Years of the Lincoln Highway” in the University of Michigan Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library’s Audubon Room wants to take us on a journey. The exhibit commemorates the centennial of this famed U.S. highway, which once stretched from New York City’s Times Square to San Francisco’s Lincoln Park.

The Lincoln Highway’s 3,400 “scenic” miles, says Kathleen Dow, Head of the Archives Unit and curator of the Transportation History Collection at the U-M Library, was “one of America’s first paved transcontinental highways.”
