Virtual Museum Spotlight: Lincoln Highway Experience

Get a taste of what you might discover on the Lincoln Highway (psst: it probably tastes a bit like pie!). A representative from the Lincoln Highway Experience will provide engaging conversation on the historical significance of this coast-to-coast highway, from its designation as one of twelve special Heritage Areas in Pennsylvania, to the quirky supersized structures, scenic two-lane roads, and layers of transportation history that preceded it. Following the presentation there will be an opportunity to ask questions and receive personalized recommendations for what to see first!   

ABOUT LINCOLN HIGHWAY EXPERIENCE:

Discover 100+ years of Lincoln Highway history at the largest museum in America dedicated to sharing the story of the first coast-to-coast highway. Located on the Lincoln Highway between Latrobe and Ligonier, PA in the beautiful Laurel Highlands, the Lincoln Highway Experience exhibits authentic and meticulously restored 1930s Lincoln Highway artifacts.  This delightful museum offers a slice of pie, a cup of joe, and a fun place for you to go!
