- The Railsplitter Antique Auto Club has once again
teamed up with the Route 66 Heritage Foundation of Logan County to
host the 11th Annual Car Cruise-In at The Mill. The event will take
place Saturday, October 14th, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Mill,
738 S. Washington St. in Lincoln.
All are welcome to attend and/or to
register their car in the show. Registration is $5, which will go
towards ongoing annual expenses, such as insurance and utilities,
and landscaping needs at The Mill.
All members of the Railsplitter Antique Auto Club, other car clubs,
and the public are invited to this fun-filled family event. In
keeping with the decades-old tradition of music at The Mill, there
will be live music beginning at 11am, from Ryan Parcelle of Lincoln
and Stan, Jeff & Lynn from Jacksonville. There will also be a 50/50
drawing and hot pizza served at the event.
“This will be the first year that the Mill will be
open as a museum during this event,” said Geoff Ladd, of the Route
66 Heritage Foundation of Logan County. "The Railsplitter Antique
Auto Club has always been fantastic and totally makes this event
possible, and has been doing so for the entire eleven years we have
been restoring The Mill.”

“I also want to thank our musicians performing this year and from
past years at Mill fund-raising events. Ryan Parcelle is returning after his
excellent debut performance at the motorcycle show in September, and Stan
Robinson & Lynn Ruby (with Jeff Newman) are returning to the Mill after their
awesome performance at the 2016 motorcycle show." Parcelle is working on a
studio recording of his original music, and Stan & Lynn are long-time members of
the band Tapestry from Jacksonville.
The Railsplitter Antique Auto Club has been an active organization in downtown
Lincoln and hosts cruise-ins throughout the spring, summer and fall. They're
always looking for new members, so come out to the Mill and join up. This club
brings a fantastic array of antique autos for display.
