  4. H.I. Lincoln Building


In 1860, Henry I. Lincoln — a distant relative to Abraham Lincoln — erected a native limestone building for his dry goods store. Today it serves a dual purpose. Part of the building is a Welcome Center with information on sites and attractions in the area, as well as merchandise and art provided by local vendors and artists. The rest is the Lincoln Highway Association National Interpretive Center, telling the story of the first transcontinental highway – the Lincoln Highway.
