The Illinois Lincoln Highway Coalition has produced thirty five Interpretive Murals along the Illinois Lincoln Highway National Scenic Byway and its corridor in northern Illinois.
An artist’s favorite, Malta’s mural showcases the Lincoln Highway’s very first seedling mile of paved highway. This strip of paved road was made to use as a “show and tell” demonstration of the advantages of travel on concrete verses mud, in an effort to obtain donations to fund the construction of paving the Lincoln Highway in Illinois. Depicting larger than life images, the mural displays a detailed painting of the workmen in Malta pouring the concrete with a steam operated mixer and a foreground view of men smoothing the surface. Stark contrasts in the vintage images are outstanding, clearly demonstrating the early style road construction.
