Location: Laxalt Theater in the Nelson Building. 401 West Second Street. Reno, NV (Washoe)
Description: The Lincoln Highway was 100 years old as of October 31 2013 and in celebration, historian Jim Bonar will look at the inspiration behind the creation of the first transcontinental highway and address the issues around why highway organizers chose the overland stage route through central Nevada as opposed to the more obvious Humboldt corridor roadway. The controversy behind the chosen highway route through Utah will also be explored. This is a must for those interested in Nevada road history.
