The Dixie Highway in Indiana, by Russell S. Rein and Jan Shupert-Arick

In 1914, the time was right to promote the second transcontinental auto highway.  Following the success of the Lincoln Highway, the Dixie Highway pushed the development of commerce and tourism for the southern states.  The Dixie Highway system grew to include routes from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, and Chicago to Miami Beach.  In Indiana, the Dixie Highway became parts of Indiana 933, US 31, Indiana 25, Indiana 29, US 421, Indiana 37, and US 150. The dogleg from Chicago to Indiana became part of US 136.  The authors of this book both are past national officers of the Lincoln Highway Association.
