The Lincoln Highway by Mike Konz

The Lincoln Highway: Nebraska's Longest Main Street Celebrates 100 Years
by Mike Konz [388.1 Kon]

Mike Konz is the managing editor of the Kearney Hub newspaper and an avid motorcyclist. This collection of photos and stories about the Lincoln Highway in Nebraska is an interesting story of the towns that rallied to help create America's first coast-to-coast highway using anything they had -- bricks, concrete and even packed dirt. This is a fascinating look at the the making of the Lincoln Highway across Nebraska using wonderful photos, newspaper articles, advertisements and interviews. This is well worth reading. -- recommended by Kim J. - Bennett Martin Public Library
