US Route 65 and the Jefferson Highway

I’ve written about US Route 65 and the Jefferson Highway before, but here’s some added pictures of the mileage signs near Mason City and Northwood.

Iowa has new signs up recognizing the significance of the Jefferson Highway’s route as being one of the first established north-south motorways in the nation.

The Jefferson Highway and US65 traveled into Faribault on Glynview Trail and Willow Street, before turning up Central Avenue, curving left at “The Curve”, continuing to near Northfield and eventually to St. Paul, and all the way up to Winnipeg.

Faribault was enough of a major city at that time to have signs in Iowa 72 miles away, which have been updated and are still there today!
