Lincoln Highway Buy-Way Yard Sale returns Aug. 12-14.
The three days of yard sales and garage sales includes residents, businesses and organizations along and in the area of the Lincoln Highway and U.S. 30 in Ohio and Wayne County.
A Lincoln Highway BUY-WAY Yard Sale Travelers Guide will be distributed along the corridors of Ohio’s portion of America’s historic first coast-to-coast paved road, according to historicbyway.com.
The guide is a free and useful tool for people planning to travel the annual BUY-WAY Yard Sale.
Ohio Lincoln Highway Historic Byway Executive Director Mike Hocker said in an article at www.historicbyway.com, “These guides can be found along the highway at participating businesses. Just check at local retails, restaurants, attractions, convenience stores and gas stations along the byway.”
“The guide is very helpful since many people are confused about where the “Lincoln” ran…and it did change alignments through the years from 1913 to 1928,” Hocker added. “Then the government simply re-named the Lincoln Highway in most areas as US Route 30.”
“All alignments are fair game for shoppers, giving those in Ohio alone roughly 500 miles of yard sales, community events and festivals with lots of food, drink, fun for kids–and most importantly–shopping for bargains!” Hocker said.
The guide features a map of all Lincoln Highway alignments, and corresponding Lincoln Highway towns in Ohio, and also shows the current US Route 30 which mostly parallels the “Lincoln.” The guide also contains listings and ads for more than 50 of the larger group events scheduled during the three day event, and a convenient restaurant listing page.
More information and a printable listing of yard sales and locations can be found at www.historicbyway.com. The list is being updated frequently until the yard sale event.
