Darcy Maulsby | The Lincoln Highway
@ ARTISAN GALLERY 218
Nothing says freedom like the great American road trip, especially when you’re on the historic Lincoln Highway in Iowa. A forerunner of the interstate system, the highway became America’s first coast-to-coast road in 1913, passing through Iowa from Clinton to Council Bluffs. Long associated with adventure, the rich heritage of the Lincoln Highway endures across Iowa, from the Lighthouse Inn Supper Club, which served gangsters like Dillinger and Capone, to the Youngville Café to roadside attractions like the monuments near Scranton that honor the highway’s namesake. Join author Darcy Maulsby as she rediscovers the past, savors some classic Iowa recipes and explores authentic Americana along the timeless Lincoln Highway.
