"At the pass, a bust of Lincoln—rough and weathered—stand beside a visitor center and overlook off the Interstate. Lincoln is the symbol of union, of course, and the Union Pacific railroad and the Lincoln Highway. Henry Joy, the champion of the Lincoln Highway, gets more play than the Ames brothers."

Both the Lincoln sculpture and the Henry Joy momument were moved from the original Lincoln Highway to the I-80 Summit rest stop. The Joy monument was previously located off the I-80 Continental Divide exit, over a hill on a dirt road, in an area even more obscure than the Ames Monument. It was moved for protection. A perimeter of 4 Lincoln Highway concrete markers were shot up by less than historically minded locals.
