Jim Bonar discusses the Lincoln Highway 101: The First Transcontinental Highway Across America

The Lincoln Highway was the First Transcontinental Highway Across the United States – what was it, when was it, and where did it go? This presentation features a lecture and slide show on the development and history of the Lincoln Highway, including how the highway crossed the US. This is part of our local history of Nevada, as the Lincoln Highway passed through Reno, Sparks, Carson City, around Lake Tahoe, and across Donner Summit. Do you know when you are traveling it around town?
