Dear Indiana Lincoln Highway Association Members and Friends,

In 2016 we will participate in the state-wide celebration of Indiana’s Bicentennial! We know that this year-long event will bring tourists from near and far and we want to enable them to easily drive and explore the Lincoln Highway. In order to do that, we invite you to support one of more of the following projects:

  • Consistent signage of both alignments of Indiana’s Lincoln Highway. Sadly, signage is currently rather hit-and-miss, depending on the location. Our new Byway signs will allow tourists to follow the Route much more easily. Each sign plus directional arrow costs roughly $70, and we need 170 of them.
  • Indiana Byways Bicentennial Passport program. Each of the seven Indiana Byways has selected several sites at which travelers can check in and have their Byways Passport stamped. The goal is that families will be encouraged to explore the historic roads while collecting stamps. The INLHA needs $750 to fund the production of the passports and LH stamps for each of the 10 sites, as well as complementary literature describing the Route.
  • Completion of the Goshen Gazebo and Ostermann Memorial site in Dyer so they are ready for Bicentennial visitors in early 2016.
