standing archaeological, cultural, historic, natural, recreational
and scenic qualities along Nebraska’s two-lane highways. This
program gives towns, attractions and businesses along the Sce-
nic Byways another tool to use in their marketing and advertis-
ing strategies.
The purpose of the Lincoln Highway 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
