People are celebrating an Iowa road on its 100th birthday at a central Iowa roadside spot known for its nostalgic look.

“One of the best preserved one-stops on the Lincoln Highway in Iowa for sure and possibly in the nation. Gas, food, lodging. Thats what this corner was all about,” says Scott Berka.

A 100th Anniversary Lincoln Highway tour will be in Iowa Friday and Saturday. It marks the centennial of America's first paved transcontinental road.

Groups of riders left New York City and San Fransisco so they will eventually meet up in Kearney, Nebraska.

The east coast travelers are lucky enough to ride through Iowa. Friday they'll stop at the Niland- Reed corner at Colo. It's a preserved old-time gas station, cafe, and motel.

The cars will be old and new and the public is welcome to come by to see the vehicles.

Travelers are staying overnight in Ames and take off for Nebraska Saturday morning.
