Woodbine, Iowa, was a stopping point for a cross-country tour of Lincoln Highway on Saturday.
WOODBINE, Iowa (KTIV) -
If you're a fan of old time cars and history, Woodbine, Iowa, was the place to be Saturday.
A cross country tour of the Lincoln Highway that started in New York City on June 21 made a stop there for lunch.
It's called the Centennial Tour, and guests are celebrating the 100 year history of the highway, which runs from New York City to San Francisco.
The brick portion of the highway in Woodbine was recently redone and gives the town of 1,500 a sense of pride, and they're excited to be able to share the memories of the road.
It's just as exciting for the tourists who enjoy seeing the Midwest.
"Doesn't matter if we're Canadian or whatever our title is, to us there are no borders and to me this is a wholesome trip. This is how America really is. It's not on the freeway, it's right here," said Lorrie Fleming of Vancouver, British Columbia.
The first tour down Lincoln Highway was for the 90th anniversary ten years ago. This trip will end in Kearney, Neb., on Sunday, but many of the tourists will finish the trip on their own.
Organizers of the tour say if all goes well this time, there will be many more opportunities to take the cross-country trip in the future.
