AAA Editor Notes
National Road-Zane Grey Museum is off I-70 exit 164 at 8850 E. Pike. The museum traces the development of the country's first “highway”—the National Road from Cumberland, Md., to Vandalia, Ill. Exhibits, including a 136-foot miniature diorama, depict the history of both the road and vehicle technology. The museum features an original Conestoga wagon and harnesses as well as art pottery and decorative tile produced by local potteries. Objects belonging to Western novelist Zane Grey and copies of his manuscripts also are displayed.
Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
