Where Have You Lived On The Lincoln Highway?

Recommended Posts

Some of us on the Illinois LH group have had this discussion, but I thought it would be fun to try it out on this group.

 

I've lived in the following on the LH:

 

Kearney, Nebraska

Fremont, Nebraska

Denison, Iowa

and

DeKalb, Illinois.

 

Not talking about visits here; should be places you have had a "residence"!

 

Anyone with more than my four? :)

Just one for me: South Bend, Indiana.

 

In the fifth edition of the Lincoln Highway guide:

Tracy, California

Hayward, California

 

Not in the guide, but along the route:

Dublin, California

San Leandro, California

 

Although I don't currently live in a Lincoln Highway city the office I currently work in is less than 100 yards from the Lincoln in Dublin, CA.

Went to good ol' Northern Illinois University in Dekalb from 1969 to 1971 and 1972-1973. I also got my Masters from there. Been back many, many, many, many times since then.

 

Spent many a night doing what we called the "Lincoln Crawl" from one bar to another on the Lincoln. Sometimes quite literally.

I currently live in an apartment building directly on Lincoln Highway in Chicago Heights (1/4 mile west of where it intersects with Dixie)

 

Its very noisy--makes it hard to sleep at night! but I appreciate the history.

 

FlossmoorLibrarian,

 

Good to see you back "on the board!" If you are going to live on the highway, or very close to it, I guess you have to sacrifice something! :D

 

How are the Lincoln and Dixie doing in your neighborhood? I'll be rolling on short sections of the early Lincoln and Dixie next month, but a long way from your home base (Nebraska and Florida).

 

Keep the Show on the Road!

I've never lived on it, but if I can take credit for my wife, before we were married she lived in Rock Springs, WY; Green River, WY; and Salt Lake City, UT. So it's somewhat vicarious. We were married in Green River, though.
