Details

Located at 1412 W. Rock Falls Rd (Rt 30) on the United Electric Bldg, this Lincoln Highway mural showcases the Corn Carnival in Rock Falls, a unique event that took place during the early years of the Lincoln Highway. With newly paved roads making travel easier, visitors could attend festivals and find entertainment located just off the highway. The painting depicts an auto decked out with corn for the carnival and a highly sought after prized blue ribbon.
