  1. The ideas for the Lincoln Highway, the National Old Trails Road, and the Yellowstone Trail were all conceived in 1912. The National Old Trails Association (aka Ocean-to-Ocean Highway Association) and the Yellowstone Trail Association were both established in 1912. The Lincoln Highway Association was established July 1, 1913. However, the complete route of the Lincoln Highway was the first to be determined, in 1913 (publicly announced September 14, 1913 and formally dedicated October 31, 1913), whereas the complete routes of both the National Old Trails Road and the Yellowstone Trail were not determined until 1917. Reference the Federal Highway Administration website about the Lincoln Highway, the website Yellowstone Trail - State by State and the Wikipedia page for National Old Trails Road.
