A stop at the Railsplitter Covered Wagon on your Route 66 journey is a must. Abraham Lincoln is a big part of the history in Logan County. He often traveled to Lincoln as a circuit riding lawyer on the 8th Judicial CircuitSo it is only fitting that Abe is featured atop of the the Wagon. 

The wagon was created by David Bentley and donated by Larry J. Van Bibber in January of 2007.

The Wagon measures 25 ft tall and 40 ft long, the Guinness Book of World Records recognizes this Lincon landmark as the World's Largest Covered Wagon. In the Winter, the cover is removed to protect it from the elements but it is put back on every Spring.
