The Lincoln Highway celebrates it's 100th birthday in 2013. Around Labor Day the small farm community of Malta, Illinois celebrated the centennial with the opening of an amazing corn maze. Malta was the site of the first test mile of concrete that would become part of the Lincoln Hwy and eventually reach the Pacific Ocean. Our guest Sue Hronik , is the program director for the Illinois Lincoln Highway Coalition and she will explain all about that role and the remarkable corn maze created at the Jonamac Orchard to celebrate the event. Let’s just say that this isn't Old MacDonald’s corn maze; it covers 10 acres with 3 miles of pathways and two bridges!
