Map of the Month – May

May’s Map of the Month is Jefferson Highway – From Pine To Palm. The map was published in 1917 by the Kenyon Company of Des Moines, Iowa. Showing the full-length of the highway, which extends from Winnipeg, Canada, to the Gulf of Mexico in New Orleans, Louisiana, the map includes interesting details such as a listing of state officials and various mileage charts. The total mileage of the Jefferson Highway is a whopping 2,278 miles. If you have a penchant for maps or are a Jefferson Highway buff, feel free to stop in at the museum’s Rosenmeier Research Room to take a peek. The museum is open year-round, Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
