OUR EXPERIENCE WHILE ON SET
OUR ADDITIONAL TIP
The monument itself was a little tricky to get to! Once you exit the I-80 highway, you need to take Lincoln Highway which will lead you to Monument Road. Don’t be thrown off by Monument Road…it’s a dirt, but it will get you where you want to go! Once you get to Ames Monument, you can finish off the Legends of Laramie Tour on your smartphone or just take a little walk around the monument.

While you are in the area of Ames Monument, keep your eyes out for an enormous bust of Abraham Lincoln along I-80. The bust is located near the highest point of the Lincoln Highway. The bronze bust is 13 ½ feet tall and is mounted on a 35 foot granite base. You can’t miss it! The Lincoln Highway was the first transcontinental highway for cars in the USA, starting in NYC and ending in San Francisco.
