which began in 1999, is designed to showcase outstanding
archaeological, cultural, historic, natural, recreational and scenic
qualities along Nebraska’s two-lane highways. This program
gives towns, attractions and businesses along the Scenic Byways
another tool to use in their marketing and advertising
strategies.
The purpose of the Lincoln Highway Scenic & Historic
Byway is to promote and preserve the intrinsic scenic and
historic qualities of the Lincoln Highway route through
Nebraska. It also gives the communities the direction needed to
support ongoing efforts to identify significant aspects of the
highway, educate residences, and make its history come to life
for visitors.
Driving across Nebraska on this byway today is a reminder
of what the road was like.The communities along the route are
embracing their Lincoln Highway past, with new renovations and
restorations occurring each year. Many sites are right on
Highway 30, and others are just a block or two away. Many yet-
to-be restored locations also exist, adding interest to the journey.
To explore modern-day attractions and regional events
along the byway, refer to each region in this guide or visit
