Trip Idea

A Road Trip 200 Years in the Making: Lincoln Highway

The nation’s first transcontinental highway, Lincoln Highway moves from Fort Wayne to Hammond.

About this trip idea

Indiana’s seven historic and scenic byways have teamed up to create the Indiana Byways Passport. The passport gives you a guide as you explore the byways, collecting unique stamps from the various locations along the route. Officially endorsed as a Legacy Project of the Indiana Bicentennial, there is no better way to see the Hoosier State.

This trip idea is a sampling of the highlights listed in the passport. You can get your passport at any of the stops listed and collect your stamps at your own pace!

 

Lincoln Highway
The nation’s first transcontinental highway,  Lincoln Highway is a route from New York City to San Francisco and crosses Indiana from Fort Wayne to Hammond. Formed in 1913, the original route traveled north through South Bend and Elkhart, but in 1928 the routé was shortened to travel through Warsaw and Plymouth. Start your journey at the  Fort Wayne Visitors Center. Stop at the  Magic Wand in Churubusco, a classic diner serving delicious food. Stay at the  Kimmell House Inn B & B, a Victorian inn built in 1876. Car enthusiasts will love the  Studebaker National Museum in South Bend. Explore an extensive Lincoln Highway collection at the  Dyer Historical Society, and learn about the influence of historic roads at the  Marshall County Museum & Crossroads Center.
