Race to finish the Lincoln Highway Ostermann Monument Site Renovation

It’s May in Indiana, so attention has turned to anticipation surrounding who will qualify for the100th running of Carl Fisher’s Indianapolis 500 race on May 29th, and who will persevere to Victory Lane.

In Northwest Indiana, another race is underway along the Ideal Section of Carl Fisher’s Lincoln Highway—the race to complete the renovations at the site of the Henry C. Ostermann Memorial Seat and the Ideal Section Monument before the official September 17th dedication. Generous in-kind and monetary donations have enabled qualifying renovations to date which include the removal and refinishing of the five historical plaques (four bronze and one aluminum), cleaning, tuck-pointing, and adding a protective coating to the stone monuments, excavation of the flagstone steps and terrace, removal of non-original trees and vegetation, completion of a sidewalk to improve access, and development of interpretive panels and restoration of a Lincoln Highway concrete post to enhance the site.

Now we’re ready for the race to the finish line: professional re-installation of the plaques, fabrication of the interpretive panels and mounting posts, repairs for the steps and terrace and some final landscaping will cost about $2,000. Remaining balance in the account plus new donations from the Indiana Lincoln Highway Association members bring the total needed down to about $1,000. Tax-deductible donations of any size at any time are welcome, but reaching the checkered flag by May 29th will assure that we have the time needed to complete the project by September.

Contributions can be made by check payable to INLHA and sent to Indiana Lincoln Highway Association, 402 W. Washington St., South Bend, IN 46601. You can also pay by PayPal using the Donate button on our homepage, even if you do not have a PayPal account. Just mention that your contribution is for the Ostermann Bench in the PayPal comments section.

Indiana Byways Bicentennial Passport–an Indiana Bicentennial Legacy Project

Summer is just around the corner but that doesn’t mean you can’t start making plans for a road trip using the Indiana Byways Bicentennial Passport–an Indiana Bicentennial Legacy Project.

Passports and boxesVisit the website below to get started, watch the video, and be sure to then click on the Lincoln Highway to see the 10 sites along both routes of the Lincoln Highway Byway. Pick up a Passport at any of the listed locations (a small $2 donation is encouraged) and be sure to get it stamped while there, and at the other sites as well.

While we are naturally partial to the Lincoln Highway Byway, this is a joint effort between all seven Indiana Byways. When you’ve completed the Lincoln Highway, there are great sites listed on the other Byways too.

It’s a Road Trip 200 Years in the Making!

MAKING A PLANNED GIFT TO THE INDIANA LINCOLN HIGHWAY ASSOCIATION

The Indiana Lincoln Highway Association (INLHA) is leading efforts to preserve America’s first coast-to-coast highway, promote tourism along it, tell its history, and expand ways to enjoy today’s routes.

As we look forward to the coming years, there are many new and ongoing projects and opportunities.  We are now an Indiana Scenic BYWAY, which allows us to produce and display new route signs, as well as to provide easier access to attractions to see and do along and near the two Indiana routes.

We ask you to take a moment to look down the road with us . . . to imagine what a planned gift could do to support our work.  We’ve listed on the document linked below some planned giving methods often used by individuals and families to help support a favorite charity.  Please consider which of them might be right for you. We also recommend that you consult your tax accountant or lawyer about your planned giving goals.
