STERLING – The Sterling-Rock Falls Historical Society will hear about life along Lincoln Highway when it meets Sunday.

Jack Otteson of Morrison will speak about how Lincoln Highway affected people who lived along it as the first cross-country highway in the early 1900s.

Part of the program is based on L.L. Abbott’s book “A House by the Side of the Road.”

The free meeting is open to the public. It will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday in Ryberg Auditorium at CGH Medical Center, 100 E. LeFevre Road.
