1. The Lincoln Highway Marker
Inscription. The Lincoln Highway, America's first trans-continental route, was officially opened in June, 1915, amid widespread local celebrations. The highway (US Route 30) originally entered the city's East End, but later alterations caused it to cross into East Liverpool via the Chester Bridge. Henry Osterman, the Public Relations Director of the Lincoln Highway, lived in East Liverpool and after his death in a car accident was buried in Riverview Cemetery.
