Illinois Lincoln Highway Coalition (ILHC) has developed a series of 35 interpretive murals that highlight the development of the historic Lincoln Highway and how it affected the many communities across northern Illinois.  The Rochelle mural depicts the travels of Emily Post as she made her way across the United States on the Lincoln Highway. Due to the sticky mud caused by heavy rains, Emily and her son, Ned, were able to spend a few days in Rochelle before being able to continue their trek to San Francisco.

This project is funded by grant dollars from the Federal Highway Administration with support from Illinois Department of Transportation and the Illinois Bureau of Tourism.
