LINCOLN HIGHWAY NEWS IS A BLOG BY BRIAN BUTKO
Three years after walking across his home state to raise funds and awareness for the Lincoln Highway Association and the Alzhiemer’s Association, Jeff Blair is preparing to do it again. He says “I want to celebrate my 66th birthday by walking the 150+ mile distance over 11 days just to prove I still can!”

Jeff will leave Dyer, Indiana (on the Indiana/Illinois border) on April 25, 2014, and head east along the 1928 version of the first transcontinental highway, which is more direct than the original route. He’ll reach the Indiana/Ohio border on May 5.

The postcard backs are also reproduced, including the personal handwritten messages. All paid visitors to the museum will also receive a free new postcard (and stamp) to write out and address while at the museum.

The museum has an archive with more than 3,000 Lincoln Highway postcards. It is located just west of the Kingston Bridge on US 30 eastbound. The exhibit is located in a room of the historic 1815 Johnston House, one of the oldest structures along the Lincoln Highway.
