Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor
In 1913, when the Lincoln Highway stretched from New York City to San Francisco, it did more than create a new way to travel the country. It sparked the public’s imagination and fostered the rapid growth of automobile tourism. The Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor covers a 200-mile stretch of that road in PA, offering up everything from forts and scenic vistas to quaint mom and pop gas stations. The Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor reminds travelers that getting there is half the fun.
