To travel along Nebraska’s Lincoln Highway Scenic & Historic Byway is to travel through America’s transportation history. Previously known as the “Great Platte River Road,” the Lincoln Highway Scenic & Historic Byway was traversed by Native Americans and later fur traders who explored the west. The route was then used in America’s great westward migration. Modern travelers will experience the small rural towns that developed along the route every six to twelve miles across the entire byway. Across the byway, travelers will find numerous historical markers commemorating significant incidents along the highway.
