Join the Illinois Lincoln Highway Association for a presentation by Don Larson on the history of the Lincoln Highway and parks, including the history of Annie's Woods, DeKalb's own link along this first transcontinental highway. Folks with vintage cars are welcome to bring them!

Those folks who would like to join us for lunch at Bakers' Square at noon before the presentation should RSVP to at least by around April 18th.

Following the lecture, there will be a membership meeting, goodies, and a drive to Annie's Woods, formerly an auto camp. There is one picture of the brand new building which just opened in October of 2005 in an online magazine:

There are other pictures of the insides of the building in that online magazine.


For those interested in the history of DeKalb, Northern Illinois University, or hard-core LH fans, there are a few pictures of the Lincoln Highway that only a few people have seen before inside the book called Castle on a Hill. That book can be located at: by searching under that title. The pictures of Lincoln Highway in that book are from the archives at Northern Illinois University.
