Long Description:
At these coordinates, you can see not one but TWO markers for two of the most important roads in the US.

Stand at the northwest corner of Ottawa Street and Cass Street. When you look west, you can see the westbound traffic for the Lincoln Highway. When you face south, you can imagine the cars of old travelling to their California destination.
