Visitors to our museum, located in an 1815 historic building, will see a film on the Lincoln Highway, the first US cross-country highway, view a number of interpretive exhibits on quirky roadside architecture, distinguish differences between restored gas pumps, trace the Highway across Pennsylvania in beautiful black and white photographs, and shop for Lincoln Highway memorabilia and fine artisan crafts. Visitors also receive a 60 page driving guide and a postcard that we'll even mail for you.

Great visit with many memories on display. The staff was very friendly. There is some major expansion going on that will require a return visit. Highly recommended.

I can't say to much about this museum. It was not as interesting as I would have hoped. Beautiful old stone house. Would have enjoyed learned more about the home and the hiway.

Thank you for your post. The Lincoln Highway is older and longer than Route 66 but has a fraction of its notoriety. So glad you had an opportunity to travel part of it. We're glad you stopped at our museum.
