“The Lincoln Highway is a story about an American highway that helped teach us a new way to travel.”
The Lincoln Highway, our nation’s first coast-to-coast highway, marked the birth of popular American tourism – vacationing by automobile. Early motorists traveled to see where history was made, to experience the beauty of nature, to learn about regional differences and to have outdoor fun. The same reasons people take automobile vacations today!
Visitors who begin their journey at the Lincoln Highway Experience, nestled in the Laurel Highlands, will have a more enriching tour because they will see an inspiring orientation film, view a number of interpretive exhibits on quirky roadside architecture (including the Ship Hotel and Coffee Pot), distinguish differences between several restored gas pumps, trace the Lincoln Highway across Pennsylvania in beautiful black and white photographs, and shop for Lincoln Highway memorabilia and fine artisan crafts. In addition are exhibits on “Women at the Wheel”, Drive-in Movie Theatres, and Postcards. Visitors to the Lincoln Highway Experience receive a free postcard to write – we’ll even mail it for you! Our museum is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm and Saturdays 9 am to 1 pm. Admission is $5 per adult; teenagers are $3.
Since 1996, the not-for-profit Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor has worked with a number of local, state and federal partners on heritage preservation, sustainable community development, and responsible land conservation in south-central Pennsylvania.
Enjoy your journey on the Lincoln Highway, and remember to "Keep Thinkin' Lincoln!"
