It was a rainy day on the Lincoln Highway today, well for the morning it was, then during the afternoon it was just cloudy. We left our hotel in Wooster Ohio and our first stop is the Lost in the 50’s Drive-In It does not appear that this been open for quite some time.
Nearby is this 10ft wide section of old brick and concrete curb Lincoln Highway. This is located at the end of Sylvan Road.
In 2003, Ohio celebrated its bicentennial, here is one of the barns that was painted to announce the event.
Further along we found another brick segment of the old Lincoln Highway.
In Mansfield OH, we stopped at Porky’s Drive-In. First opened in 1949
Also in Mansfield is the Coney Island Diner. Plus we located the concrete marker.
In Ontario Ohio we stopped at the Warrior Drive-In to take some photos.
Also in Ontario OH is the Sunset Drive-In Theater which opened during WWII and still operates today.
In Bucyrus Ohio we came upon this little roadside Sinclair Gas Station. My first thoughts when I saw this were of Gary Turner and his Sinclair Gas Station on Route 66.
Also in Bucyrus is the best mural I have ever seen, you can’t tell what is real and what is the mural. The natural surroundings have been incorporated into the mural and all blend into one view.
There was also a concrete marker in the park.
In nearby Oceola Ohio we found the brick marker that is dedicated to Frank A. Seiberling, the first President of the Lincoln Highway Association.
Just West of Oceola is another old barn with advertisement.
In Upper Sandusky OH, this barn is now a popular restaurant.
We also found another section of the old brick Lincoln.
We ended our day in Lima Ohio and checked into our hotel for the evening. We will stay here in Lima for 2 days and take a bit of a breather.
