Promise Road: How the Lincoln Highway Changed America
Stop by the library during our regular hours of operation to experience an audiovisual exhibition telling the story of the national Lincoln Highway. The building of the Lincoln Highway was initiated in 1913, when most people traveled by foot, by
horse, or by train and the roads were mud or gravel. America’s first coast-to-coast highway, the Lincoln Highway starts in Times Square, New York City, and travels through 14 states, ending at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A dramatic story of ingenuity, personality, commerce, and adventure, Promise Road will engage visitors in a new understanding of and appreciation of our forgotten past and what it means for us today.
