Now part of Douglas County road 120 east of Elkhorn, this 4,580-foot segment was part of the original Lincoln Highway. Regraded and improved in 1920 with brick pavers covering a sand and concrete base, the road is an excellent example of a rural section of the Lincoln Highway in Nebraska which remains in good condition. It is now on the National Register of Historic Places, the nation's official list of historic and cultural resources. The Lincoln Highway was envisioned in 1913 by the Lincoln Highway Association as the transcontinental road which would link New York City with San Francisco (Courtesy of Nebraska Game and Parks Commission)

On the Cover:
The Nebraska Territorial seal once formed part of the skylight ceiling of the House or Representatives in the U.S. Capitol. The territorial seal was one of thirty seals installed when the house chamber was completed in 1857. It was designed by German-born Johannes Adam Oertel and fabricated by J. and G. H. Gibson of Philadelphia. Eventually the ceiling contained the seals of all forty-eight states as well as the territorial seals of Nebraska and New Mexico. When the seals were replaced during capitol remodeling in 1949, Congressman Karl Stefan requested that the Nebraska seal be given to the state. It is now displayed in the Nebraska Joins the Union exhibit in the Museum of Nebraska History in Lincoln.
