New Lincoln Highway Mural in Illinois

From the Oct. 12, 2012, Southtown (Chicago Southern Suburbs) Star "'Father of Lincoln Highway' mural goes up in Lynwood" by Susan Demar Lafferty.

This mural is the latest in a series of interpretive signs across the state of Illinois and was installed Oct. 10th.  This one, honoring Carl G. Fisher, the "Father of Lincoln Highway" went up at Lynwood's Senior/Youth Center at 21490 E. US Highway 30, the old Lincoln Highway.

There are 179 miles of the Lincoln Highway in Illinois, running east-west from Indiana to Iowa and over 20 communities now have the murals that cost $10,000 each.

This is the sixth one in the Southland area.  There are others in Frankfort, New Lenox, Park Forest, Sauk Village, University Park and Chicago Heights.  Two others in Mokena and Matteson will be up before the year is out.


Any and All Publicity Is Surely Welcome.  --RoadDoh
