On the Trail of Henry Joy
Julia Berg

In 1915, Henry B. Joy, president of the Packard Motor Car Company and first president of the Lincoln Highway Association, traveled 23 days and 2,885 miles from Detroit to the Panama-Pacific International Exhibition, arriving at the Palace of Transportation in San Francisco at 4:40 p.m. He left his Packard there, mud and all, to show it could be done. Following Packard’s trail in 2015 was hard because so much of the 1915 alignment of the Lincoln Highway had changed in 100 years. Learn the details of how our 1956 Chevy followed that trail through various cities, along with some automobile history in the process.

Julia Berg is a member of the Lincoln Highway Association.
