Artful design techniques were used to tell this important story of first establishing the Lincoln Highway route through Illinois. This significant area, known as the Sauk Trail was designated as a section of the original Lincoln Highway, through eastern Illinois, serving as a major road for daily commutes. A Lincoln Highway staff favorite, this mural depicts a playful scene from Sauk Village in the early 1900s. As automobile and livestock “share” the Kalvelage Bridge in route to their destinations. Deep shades of golden tones bring the details to life of the early roadway that was so essential to people from all walks of life.
