Details

The Illinois Lincoln Highway Coalition (ILHC) has developed a series of 16 gazebos & 40 interpretive murals that highlight the development of the historic Lincoln Highway and how it affected the many communities across northern Illinois. The Dixon gazebo is located on the banks of the Rock River at the corner of S. Galena Ave & River Street and contains interpretive panels detailing the history of the Lincoln Highway as it passed through Dixon. 

This project is funded by grant dollars from the Federal Hwy Admin. with support from Ill. Dept. of Transportation and the Illinois Bureau of Tourism. When all the gazebos & murals are installed (2011), a print piece will be developed so that visitors are able to locate them as they travel the Illinois Lincoln Highway corridor.
