A Museum For A Highway?

The Lincoln Highway was the first road to reach from coast to coast. A Pennsylvania group is building a museum to celebrate this stretch of asphalt. Designs for the museum have just been released.

The Pennsylvania DOT is paying for the museum with an expected $4.5 million in grants.

"In Pennsylvania, a 200-mile-stretch of the highway is one of the state's 12 special heritage areas. The VSBA building will sit within 100 feet of the road, in the town of Ligonier. 'We hope it will help draw people in to learn about what Lincoln Highway meant to Pennsylvania, and also let them know that it's part of a larger national story,' says [Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor]'s executive director Olga Herbert."
