Mystery Photo 8: Which way is Lincoln Highway?

March 30, 2008

Which way is the Lincoln Highway? They both are! The original route curves past the old house and junkyard, while the bypass crosses the old road at left – this view looking east. Though the original road can be driven, that may change in the next few years as a big project might remake the mostly rural roads. Related to the same subject, the junkyard was in the news a number of years ago. Those are big clues – the only other one for now is that it’s in the eastern U.S. Any guesses as to the location, or need more clues?

Guess another clue is needed – it’s in Pennsylvania.

Here’s a late-night photo from the Lincoln Highway in Illinois. Anyone able to identify the city?

UPDATE: OK, it’s been answered – check the comments section. If you want to guess, don’t look at the map below yet!! The first image is from Google Street Views.

I’ve highlighted the map to show the original Lincoln Highway in Red and the rerouting in Blue, where you’ll find the business.
