Rest Stop Dedicated by Lady Bird

Lady Bird's Rock was recently painted a nice shade of blue!

[Roger Crook, 01/26/2013]

Lady Bird Johnson, first lady of President Johnson, officially dedicated the Dumfries I-95 Rest Area in 1965. We're guessing, but this painted rock probably wasn't what Lady Bird had in mind when she set out on her campaign to beautify America's highways.
