Enjoy the ‘Ultimate Iowa Road Trip’ on the Lincoln Highway

  • 0

Nothing says freedom like the great American road trip, especially when you cruise the historic Lincoln Highway in Iowa. Better known today as Highway 30, the Lincoln Highway revolutionized Iowa and America when the historic route was developed more than a century ago.

“If you’ve ever traveled on an interstate — or any paved road, for that matter — you owe a debt of gratitude to the visionaries who promoted the Lincoln Highway to connect the country,” said Darcy Dougherty Maulsby, a Lake City-area author who recently published the non-fiction book “The Lincoln Highway in Iowa — a History” with The History Press. “The development of the Lincoln Highway and its legacy today reflects a tremendous story of American innovation, community spirit, freedom and an unshakable belief in a brighter future.”
