Lincoln Highway Mural - Rock Falls
Funded by the Illinois Lincoln Highway Coalition, this Lincoln Highway mural, by artist Jay Allen, highlights how the Lincoln Highway drew travelers to towns just off the highway.
Address: 1412 West Rock Falls Road, Rock Falls IL 61071
"Special events, fairs and festivals drew travelers to towns located just off the Lincoln Highway. People drove from miles around to enjoy the annual Corn Carnival in Rock Falls. Every building along city streets was decorated with harvest corn. The Corn Carnival offered something for everyone. There were exhibits and contests with prized blue ribbons, car races and the popular event known as Auto Day were big crowd pleasers."
