One if By Land

By Earl McElfresh

Olean, NY – As people hit the roads for the July 4th holiday weekend, they'll be traveling on eight-lane superhighways and two-lane back roads. As Olean map-maker Earl McElfresh continues his special series of essays, "One If By Land," he takes us for a ride on Route 66.

Earl McElfresh operates the McElfresh Map Company in Olean.

You can hear his essay by clicking the "listen" icon above.

Next Wednesday, McElfresh will tell us how Buffalo herds were responsible for the nation's system of interstate highways.
