The Lincoln Highway- A Road to Somewhere Else

FREE event ? 3pm – 6pm ? In honor of National Travel and Tourism Week WTPSHS will host an event will consist of a panel of historians and authors who will discuss the impacts of the Lincoln Highway in Wyoming and will conclude with a showing of the PBS documentary 100 Years on the Lincoln Highway. The Lincoln Highway, built in 1913 and traversing more than 3300 miles, cut across twelve states and four time zones. In Wyoming, the highway followed the route of the old Transcontinental Railroad and helped in the development and expansion of the state.

In conjunction with the event, a new traveling exhibit “A Room for the Night” will be on display which explores the transformation of Wyoming’s roadside lodging from hotels to motels during the late 19th and 20th centuries. Albany County Tourism Board, Lincoln Highway Association – Laramie and Wyoming PBS is partnering with WTPSHS for this event. ? Call 745-3733 for information.
