Old Highway 20 is now a designated route through Delaware County.
Brian Farr with the Historic Route 20 Association made a special stop in Manchester last Friday.
There are now over 180 signs across the state guiding people along the original Highway 20 – including in Manchester, Earlville and Dyersville.
Farr says he’s learned about Old 20 in Iowa.
Farr actually lives on Highway 20 too – in Massachusetts – and he says even though it’s 1,000 miles away, when he’s in Iowa, he knows Old 20 will get him home.
