Lincoln Highway Conference 6/20-24 Iselin, NJ

Special Lincoln Highway Celebration returns to New Jersey
Iselin, NJ., June 20 thru 24: This coming June, the modern Lincoln Highway Association to New Jersey will be holding a special Lincoln Highway Conference and Tour to give people the opportunity to experience the lively history of our wonderful road systems.
The Lincoln Highway is America’s first coast to coast improved highway designed for automobiles. In 1913, when Carl Fisher envisioned this engineering marvel, there were few roads that the horseless carriage could navigate. Urban centers on the east and west coast were meccas for this strange contraption, but as one moved away from cities, in many places, roads just did not exist.
In New Jersey, wisely, The Lincoln Highway used existing roads. Today we have Pershing Road in Weehawken, JFK Blvd in Hudson County, NJ Route 27 in Essex, Union, Middlesex and Somerset. In Princeton NJ, Route 27 ends and US 206 brings the traveler to Pennsylvania.
The New Jersey Lincoln Highway Conference will be centered at the Renaissance Hotel on US 1 in Woodbridge. This 4-day extravaganza will feature seminars, exhibits, memorabilia, and a bus excursion to points of interest along this storied road.
