Travel the Historic National Road With Us! - July 10, 6-7pm

In honor of the Summer Reading Program, “Have Book, Will Travel!” the Collinsville Library will be hosting a fun and fascinating program about the historical National Road. Travel back in time with us and trace 200 years of American history right in our very own back yard! 

The National Road was the nation's first federally funded interstate highway. It opened the nation to the west and became a corridor for the movement of goods and people. Today, visitors experience a physical timeline, including classic inns, tollhouses, diners, and motels.
