about us
The Illinois Lincoln Highway Coalition has produced a series of 35 Interpretive Murals that are installed along the Illinois Lincoln Highway National Scenic Byway and its corridor in over two dozen communities. Each mural depicts the history, heritage and events of the highway and its impact on American travel.

The Coalition worked in a collaborative process directly with local historians, civic leaders, and talented artists to bring the murals to each community. This project effort provides a wonderful way to share the intriguing stories about the evolution of travel with the visitors who explore the Lincoln Highway in Illinois and discover all that it has to offer. With completion of the mural series, a collection of postcards is being created to highlight each mural. A website dediicated to the mural series is also in the development stages. This website will include the stories behind the murals and select information about the mural subjects and the creation process. Check back for updates on the progress of these new projects!
