The Lincoln Highway in Nevada stretches across the middle part of the state, linking historic towns from Ely to Reno. Much of it coincides with modern U.S. 50, which has been dubbed The Loneliest Road in America.
The Nevada chapter of the Lincoln Highway Association meets four times a year. The meetings either include lunch at an historic restaurant or a program on various highway and historical topics. The chapter also plans two to three road trips a year. All are welcome!
