The Lincoln Highway in Iowa
Nothing says adventure like the great American road trip, especially when you cruise the historic Lincoln Highway in Iowa. A forerunner of the interstate system, the Lincoln Highway became America’s first coast-to-coast road in 1913, passing through Iowa from Clinton to Council Bluffs. The rich heritage of the Lincoln Highway endures across Iowa, from the Lighthouse Inn Supper Club (which served gangsters like Dillinger and Capone) to the Youngville Café to roadside attractions like the monuments near Scranton that honor the highway’s namesake.
