The Road That Created Florida, Carl Fisher's Dixie Highway-- Part 4: The Cincinnati Caravan

In 1916, the Palm Beach Post newspaper encouraged locals to welcome a 500-car caravan that was to start in Cincinnati in October and was to drive along the Dixie Highway to Miami.

Old Dixie Highway dead ends at the south bank of the C-17 Canal/ Earman River.  There was once a bridge there, but it burned in 1933.

The article then has a helpful detailed driving tour of the Dixie through the whole county.

So, If You Want drive the Old Road, There You Go.  --RooadDog
