A remarkable story is told on this mural. The Boy Scouts of America were chosen by the Lincoln Highway Association, to simultaneously place the Lincoln Highway concrete markers across the nation in 1928.  With a very well thought out plan, volunteer Boy Scout troops installed the iconic markers from coast-to-coast all in one day.  It is most appropriate to tell this story in Oswego, with their community being so actively involved in Scouting for over sixty years.  This was only the second mural in the collection to be produced with a vertical design, making a very striking statement.
The mural’s color pallet echoes the patriotic feel of the story, with great care
and attention taken to paint the intricate images.
