The Lincoln Highway Becomes a Mud Hole in 1917

From the June 28, 2017, MidWeek  "Looking Back."

1917, 100 Years Ago.

"Of late much complaint has been heard concerning the Lincoln Highway east of DeKalb, especially between Maple Park and Cortland.

"From what facts are obtainable it is said that the road has been plowed up, and instead of a gravel road that was in evidence there, it is now a mud road, unpassable in wet weather."

Evidently the Lincoln Highway was still not all paved by 1917, four years after it was created.
