Lincoln Highway Heritage CorridorArches were a common site across the Lincoln Highway route. A Gateway Arch, now removed, spanned Lincoln Way East. The wooden arch greeted travelers as they passed through downtown. It was at this very intersection (Lincoln Highway and U. S. Route 11) when General Robert E. Lee made his decision to ride "east towards Gettysburg" in 1863.
