Iowa Lincoln Highway Association

Hey All! I’d like to introduce myself and ask for prayers. Just kidding, just kidding. My name is Jen VanOort, or Jenny if you ask my grandma. Better known as the lady who lives in the Cooperider house, if you’re from Clarence. I will be serving as the INTERIM executive director for the Clarence Main Street program for the next little bit.

I love this photo of Joe St. John and I, at the grand opening of my shop, because it was really Joe who started my passion for preserving the history of Clarence, way back in our Lincoln Highway Festival days volunteering together. Then, 13 years later, Joe sold me his building, giving me a real stake in the prosperity of the business district!

My family has lived in Clarence for 15 years. We’ve been involved in lots of volunteer endeavors and now we also own the Onion Grove Mercantile in the district as well. My husband is a software engineer at Collins Aerospace and we have two really swell kids, a very needy dog and a backyard pig.

Prior to this role I served as the board secretary and chair of the Design Committee. I can’t wait to jump in and make sure the opportunities of being Iowa’s smallest designated Main Street Iowa Community are shared with EVERY Clarence business and building owner. Call, text or hunt me down anytime! I’m here to help! ❤️

As more and more of the original Lincoln Highway fabric disappears beneath superhighways, our role in preserving its legacy becomes urgent. Help us by appreciating its history; get off the beaten path, discover small towns, historic motels and restaurants, and the beauty of curving, tree-lined roads. Experience travel the way it was when getting there was half the fun—drive the Lincoln Highway. —Cathie Nichols, Clinton County Member
