The earliest businesses in Ames established themselves at the east end of Onondaga Street near the first railroad depot, which expanded into the “downtown” district over the next 50 years. With the switch to automobiles, business growth moved to the Lincoln Highway and later to Highway 69. Since 1913 all of the houses on the Lincoln Highway south of downtown were replaced with businesses, 77 of them by 1955. The speaker will explore this trend and some of these businesses as an illustration of how transportation influences urban design.
