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 museum, 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 Theaters, and Postcards. Visitors to the Lincoln Highway Experience receive a postcard to write – we’ll even mail it for you - as well as a 60 page driving guide for following the Lincoln Highway along our 200 mile corridor in Pennsylvania as part of their $5 a person admission.
