The Lincoln Highway follows U.S. 30 through the rolling countryside and the Village of Farmers.
Note the Road of Remembrance Marker at (add GPS location). The monument is on private property. In 1921 memorial trees were planted along the Lincoln Highway across York County to remember the military who died during World War I. The Women’s Club of York led this effort to plant thousands of trees that no longer remind us of their sacrifice and service.

An original alignment of the Lincoln Highway follows the pasture just south of the Lincoln Highway Cattle Company at the intersection with Lake Road. This is private property but there is an original 1928 concrete marker visible from Lake Road at the driveway of the property. The original road was part of the York and Gettysburg Toll Road system that was established in 18xx.
