THE LINCOLN HIGHWAY
The Lincoln Highway gave people the ability to travel across the United States in their vehicles. It was as important to our nation as the Transcontinental Railroad in transporting people to the West. It was routed through Wyoming from our eastern border with Nebraska to our western border of Utah.

The trials that greeted the original emigrants crossing Wyoming were in some incidents very similar to those encountered by the Highway.
