Rich in History and CultureIn 1913, Carl Fisher proposed the "Coast-to-Coast Rock Highway". Eager to put America on wheels, executives from automobile and tire manufacturers quickly joined in the effort. At the inaugural meeting on July 1, 1913, the newly elected President, Henry Joy, proposed the highway be dedicated to the martyred Abraham Lincoln. This became a cause that Americans nationwide could rally behind.
