Details

Fulton, known as the “gateway to the westโ€š” is the western terminus of the Illinois portion of the Lincoln Highway. For a toll, motorists could continue on the route across the mighty Mississippi River on the Fulton-Lyons Bridge. The high bridge provided a quick crossing rather than the once burdensome ferry boat trip. Traffic was often stopped as tourists got out of their vehicles to capture the perfect photo atop the lofty bridge with its spectacular view of the scenic river and bordering states. The Illinois Lincoln Highway Coalition is producing a series of 40 Interpretive Murals along the Illinois Lincoln Highway National Scenic Byway and its corridor in northern Illinois. Each mural depicts the history, heritage and events of the highway and its impact on the communities.
