The Nevada Chapter of the Lincoln Highway Association will present a special free program at 1:00 pm on Saturday, November 14 at the Sparks Heritage Museum. Jim Bonar will share his popular Lincoln Highway 102 lecture, which focuses on the development of the highway, along with some terrific photos of the Nevada route.
Jimâ€™s presentation will explain how the association was formed and how the highway evolved until its demise in 1928. You will see an array of old photographs taken of the highway during its existence. The photographic tour will include many photos and maps of the highwayâ€™s paths across the state and the Sierra.
Those interested in learning more about the Lincoln Highway Association can stay for our meeting immediately following the lecture.
Jim Bonar is a retired teacher and a member of the Lincoln Highway Association. He is president of the Nevada chapter of the Lincoln Highway Association and was previously its Nevada state director.

My name is Gordon Lemich. I live at 4955 Mayberry drive in Reno. My father Ed Lemich, deceased, found a concrete highway marker somewhere in White Pine county. He brought it to my house before he died. It sits in my back yard, but I thought it may be a display item you could use.
Hi Gordon, I’ll get you in contact with someone from the Nevada chapter. Thanks!
