Talk: The Lincoln Highway. The road trip that created the Interstate Highways.
Presented by historian Jim Bonar

Speaker: Jim Bonar

Jim Bonar is a former high school teacher, who finished his career as a math teacher at Sparks High School. His retirement interests include the preservation of historical trails, roads, American Western history, skiing, hiking, woodworking, and extreme off-roading in a Jeep.

Bonar became interested in “roads” as a young child in Green River, Wyoming, while watching the traffic pass through town on Highway 30, also known as the Lincoln Highway. The Lincoln Highway Association was formed in the early 1990s and Jim became a charter member. Currently he serves as the Association’s national Board member for Nevada. For a number of years, he has been giving presentations about western historical events and always enjoys passing on his enchantment of how the West was settled.
