Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor
Pictured above: (L to R) Mike Hanson, Olga Herbert and President-Elect Ken Farabaugh
Olga Herbert, Executive Director of the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor was introduced by Mike Hanson.  Olga has been the Director of the Corridor for 25 years.  She and her small staff work to preserve the history of the Lincoln Highway by connecting residents and visitors with the story of the 1913 Lincoln Highway (Route 30).  The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania designated the Corridor in 1995 to create opportunities for preserving and interpreting resources of the original Lincoln Highway route and the regional transportation history that preceded it.
The Lincoln Highway, one of the first highways to reach across the US from New York to California, is 10 years older and two times as long as the more well-known Route 66.  Dedicated in1913, the highway helped launch auto tourism in America.
The Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor covers 200 miles through six Pennsylvania counties; Westmoreland, Somerset, Bedford, Fulton, Franklin, and Adams.  The Corridor has been featured in the Washington Post, New York Times, London Times, and is #1 on Trip Advisor for this area.
The Lincoln Highway Corridor Museum located at Latrobe, PA is a great place for visitors see a vintage 1937 Packard automobile, a 48 ft. 1938 Diner, vintage gas pumps, and a tourist cabin which pre-dates motels. For ticket information or help in planning a leisurely auto trip across the Corridor, call 724-879-4241 or go to their web site at
With every ticket admission, visitors receive a piece of Apple Pie with a cup of coffee or tea in the Diner.  The museum is open Monday through Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm with last visitors admitted at 3 pm.

Kyle Willet has resigned from our club due to getting a new job that is our of the area.
