The Jefferson Highway: From Winnipeg to New Orleans through Iowa
Envision a time when the automobile was a new form of transportation and when “good roads” were hard to find. One of the earliest attempts at improvement was the Jefferson Highway, which stretched from Winnipeg to New Orleans and traversed the great state of Iowa. Join Lyell D. Henry, Jr., author of “The Jefferson Highway: Blazing the Way from Winnipeg to New Orleans” (2016), as he recounts the story of the Jefferson Highway and looks especially at its route through Iowa one hundred years ago and today.
