The Oldest Road In America, The King’s Highway, Passes Right Through New Jersey
New Jersey is overflowing with history! Just last week, I shared the story of the world’s largest lightbulb, located along the Lincoln Highway. The Lincoln Highway is one of the oldest transcontinental highway routes in America designed for automobiles. Over a century old, it once ran from Times Square in New York to Lincoln Park in San Francisco. While the Lincoln Highway has a fascinating history, New Jersey is home to a road that’s even older.
