Commemorating the coast-to-coast Lincon Highway, the highest elevated point of this road hosts the 13.5 foot-tall, 2-ton bronze Abraham Lincoln head. This monument is mounted on a magnificent 30-foot granite pedestal.

While driving in Wyoming between Cheyenne and Laramie, on the Lincon Highway, there is no way for drivers to miss the giant head of President Abraham Lincon. This remarkable monument head is sitting on the tiny shoulder of a 30-foot-tall pure granite pedestal. This monument was created in 1959 by Isaiah Russin, an art professor who worked in Wyoming. It was built to commemorate the coast-to-coast Lincon Highway, and it happens to be the only monument of Abraham Lincon along the Lincoln Highway. This statue is stationed on the highest peak of the highway, and it is easy to spot and easily accessible by the I-80 interstate.

Located adjacent to the statute are a rest stop and a visitor center. The visitor center is open from mid-May to mid-October. Enjoy a quick stop to see all the interesting exhibits that reside here. Guests have the opportunity to learn all about the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, and more. The visitor center shows sweeping views of the highway, and it offers useful travel information for those passing through. The visitor center also hosts the memorial of the late Robert and Adel M. Russin. Russin had an obsession with Abraham Lincoln, and he even named his son after the infamous president. Russin's ashes happen to reside here at the monument, as well.
