Created in 1913 and named after President Abraham Lincoln, this was the United States' first transcontinental highway. It was 3,389 miles (5,454 km) long and spanned 13 states (California, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, West Virgina, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York). It was broken up into different highways after the 1925 US highway system was created. It was nearly forgotten by the 1940s if not for a handful of people. The organization that started this highway, the Lincoln Highway Association was revived in 1992 after disbanding in 1927 following the creation of the US highway system.
