By 1923, motor camping was the number one national pastime. Automobiles provided average Americans a new type of freedom and a way to escape their daily routine by touring the countryside on short weekend trips or cross-country treks. But it wasn't long that travelers desired more conveniences - thus, the birth of tourist cabins!

Individual tourist cabins offered more security, hot showers, and radios. With the growth of national chain hotels and motels, tourist cabins struggled for survival. However, the Lincoln Motor Court (built in 1944) provides an authentic, Lincoln Highway-era setting for today's visitors.
