In 1913, the proclamation of the Lincoln Highway stated the purpose of the Lincoln Highway Association to be: “to immediately promote and procure the establishment of a continuous improved highway from the Atlantic to the Pacific, open to lawful traffic of all description, without toll charges and to be of concrete wherever practicable.
Webb pointed out that the Lincoln Highway was and still is an important piece of the history of Van Wert County. There are several photographs of places in the county found in Butko’s book. Those wishing to secure a personal copy of the book may do so at www.lincolnhighwaytradingpost.com.
As president of the newly formed Western Ohio Chapter of the Lincoln Highway Association, Webb invites those interested in the history and preservation of the highway to attend the next meeting which will be held at 6 p.m. March 18 in the Postal Museum in Delphos. Dinner will be served and those planning to attend should RSVP Webb at 419-203-5779 by March 14.
Anyone wishing to become a member of the Western Chapter may do so by sending $10 in care of Webb, 6831 John Brown Road, Van Wert, OH 45891. You are encouraged to include your email address.
