Good Morning All,

I was recently visited by and had a wonderful conversation with Rob Vest. He recommended that I post a little information about our station/visitors center and I have also included a picture.

It is the first station on the Lincoln Highway in Rochelle Illinois. It was restored, at least externally, to its 1918 appearance.

It is located at 500 Lincoln Ave and anyone can contact us by calling 815-562-7031 or writing for additional information;

PO Box 331
Rochelle Il. 61068

If you are in town please feel free to stop in. We are closed Tuesday and Wednesday.

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you this summer.

Keith asked me to post a thumbnail linked to a larger image since the full size image is nearly 1/3 meg in file size.
Great photo and station! Thanks for sharing it.
