We are progressing at a much slower pace these last few days. Only driving about 100 miles each day. We slept in, had a late breakfast and left the hotel at 11 am.
Back on the Lincoln Highway, heading North and West, we drove through the town of Elida Ohio.
We stopped in Delphos OH to see the murals that relate to the Lincoln Highway.
In Middlepoint Ohio we stopped to take photos of the Van Del Drive-In Theater.
Plenty of signs mark the old route and we are confident that we are indeed following the Lincoln Highway.
Another Ohio Centennial Barn.
In downtown Van Wert Ohio, we stopped for lunch at the Balyeat’s Coffee Shop. The coffee shop has been serving travellers along the Lincoln Highway since 1924.
The Van Wert County Court House is quite an impressive building.
There is a Lincoln Highway concrete marker and a mural very close to the Balyeat’s Coffee Shop.
Heading out of Van Wert, we stopped at the B & K Root Beer just to take some photos, we are still full from our meal at the Balyeat’s.
Outside of town the 1930 alignment of the Lincoln Highway comes to a dead end so we had to take some photos on the bridge.
We get ourselves turned around and onto the US30 version of the Lincoln.
We cross the State Line from Ohio into Indiana.
In Besancon IN is this old 1846 Church and an 1892 School House.
As viewed from the school yard, you can see 3 different alignments of the Lincoln Highway. Far far off in the distance is the US30 alignment, we are standing on the 1913 alignment to take the photo and between us and the US30 alignment (you can just see the front of our car) is the 1929 alignment.
We drive through New Haven Indiana, and then we enter the city limits of Fort Wayne Indiana.
We are staying tonight in the Best Western and there is a small pond behind the hotel where Karen found some mallard ducks.
Tomorrow we will head further North and West along the Lincoln Highway.
