Famous Fifty

This charming 1954 highway guide is filled with an abundance of things to see and do along Highway 50. U.S. 50 stretches across the continent from Ocean City, Maryland to San Francisco, Calif. The National Highway Federation had offices in the tiny town of Ely, Nevada. The highway, especially portions in Nevada, is known as The Lonely Road, because of the lack of traffic and services along some stretches.

This particular guidebook was handed out by the Dodge House Museum in Dodge City, Kansas. U.S. 50 has a northern and southern section in the state of Kansas. Dodge City is on the southern leg.
