Henry Joy Monument

Originally located along I-80 at Exit 184 as a memorial to the founder of the LH near one of his favorite points along the route. This monument was moved from here to the Sherman Point exit (see the Wyoming east page), east of Laramie, two weeks (literally) after I took the following pictures (Photos from August, 2001). According to Lincoln Highway Association members in Wyoming, there now rests a plaque mentioning what used to be here and directions to find the monument's new home.
