Celebrate Lincoln’s Birthday by Supporting the Lincoln Highway

Help Preserve One of Iowa’s Most Iconic Roads

Dear Friends of the Iowa Lincoln Highway Heritage Byway,

This month we celebrate the birthday of the 16th President of the United States and the namesake for Iowa’s most historic road. The following gives you a snapshot of Prairie Rivers of Iowa’s work for the Lincoln Highway Heritage Byway (LHHB) in the coming year.

Happy Birthday Mr. President
Lincoln Highway Traveling Exhibit

Tell the story – An Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, Humanities Project Grant to create a museum-quality traveling exhibit introducing residents and visitors to the early years of the Lincoln Highway, the first transcontinental improved road. With donations, the exhibit will travel throughout Iowa for 2022 – 2023.

A National Scenic Byway

Celebrate – Achieved the National Scenic Byway designation in 2021 by the Federal Highway Administration because of its significant intrinsic historical qualities. Plans are in the works to hold a national celebration later this year.

LHHB Activity Guide

Explore – Published a new Activity Guide that explores the history and attractions, county by county, along the Lincoln Highway in Iowa with easy-to-use maps.

Ostermann LHHB Interpretive Panel

Interpret – As you drive the National LHHB in Iowa, you will see over 30 interpretive panels near historical sites that tell each sites’ historical story. In 2022, we will hold unveilings for two new interpretive panels in Woodbine and Marshalltown. Watch our website for details to come!

All this work is possible with support from those that love our Byways. Will you join us in donating today?
We need your donation by April 15 to put plans into action.

Donate $100 or more and receive a gift! Your choice of the Activity Guide or the Lincoln Highway Iowa Map Pack: A Great Iowa Tour, which shows the original mapped route of the Lincoln Highway and information on significant stops, photos, and advertisements from the early years of the highway. We hope you join us by taking action today!
