Discover the landscape of the Lincoln Highway Byways. It is the first transcontinental highway in the US and an integral part of the early automotive and travel industry. Between Fort Wayne and Valparaiso, the Lincoln Highway followed 2 main corridors in Indiana during its existence. Originally, it had a more northern route through Elkhart, South Bend, and LaPorte. It was later moved to a more direct route through Plymouth; US 30 follows a similar route today.
