Buy A Bundle At The Buy-Way

24 Jul , 2019  

The Lincoln Highway was America’s first cross-country automobile roadway. Constructed in 1913, it spanned over 3,000 miles, connecting Times Square in New York City and Lincoln Park in San Francisco. The 241-mile section that passed through Ohio was adjusted and realigned multiple times, but the final version adopted in 1928 is known as the Ohio Lincoln Highway Historic Byway. Today, the byway is not only notable for historic reasons. Each August, the Buy-Way Yard Sale (August 8-10) takes place for one weekend along the route, which passes through north central Ohio.
