  Original Published: 6/26/2013The Centennial Auto Tour made a special stop in Mansfield Tuesday as the group of more than 100 members travel from New York City to Nebraska. The group participated in the Lincoln Highway Celebration held Monday evening at Church Requel at Park Ave. West and Marion Ave. in Mansfield Monday."This being the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln Highway and also the 200th anniversary of Richland County we found an opportunity to tie together the dinner theatre we hosted in April called 1913 and bring it in one more time in June for the touring group, " Rev. Paul Lintern , event organizer and Richland County Bicentennial coordinator said. "We thought this be fun to take them back to 1913 and give them an idea of what Mansfield was like at that time," Lintern said. Mansfield residents Dick and Mary Lou Taylor, will be joining the group on the trip to Nebraska in their 1913 Stevens-Duryea. "It's an honor to share in this event. It's really great to host these people and show them some hospitality," Dick Taylor said. Lintern said the event included a traditional period dinner with music and local characters from 1913. The highlight of the celebration was the dedication of the Lincoln Highway Marker that is mounted at the church. Lincoln Highway was formally dedicated Oct. 31, 1913. It is the first national memorial to President Abraham Lincoln.
