Treasures found at the Lincoln Highway Experience

Have you noticed digging happening around the Lincoln Highway Experience museum? In anticipation of the construction of the new museum wing, members of Westmoreland Metal Detection Services (WMDS) have been on their hands and knees digging through the dirt and grass, searching for lost treasures. And they've found some!


Andy Regrut, Marcus Borden & Angie O’Brien-Vadney, through their work with WMDS, specialize in the recovery of historical artifacts. They will present a program on Wednesday, December  6 at 1 pm at the Lincoln Highway Experience museum to  share what they found.


Friends of the Lincoln Highway may attend at no charge. There is a $7 fee for others, which also includes admission to the museum in addition to the Program. Seating is limited. Call us at 724-879-4241 to make your reservation or visit www.LHHC.org and click on event Tickets under the Gift Shop tab.  The Lincoln Highway Experience museum is located at 3435 State Route 30 East, Latrobe, just before the Kingston Dam.

Telling the Lincoln Highway Story in a New Way

Providing a Better Visitor Experience


Visitors listening to the TourmateEffective June 1, 2017, all visitors to the Lincoln Highway Experience will have a deeper and richer visitor experience because of our newly implemented Tour-Mate system.  This professionally produced audio tour provides a fully integrated interpretive experience for visitors.  In addition to the basic Lincoln Highway story, it provides a compelling ‘back story’ in a fun and engaging way; even appropriate sound effects are included!  But, staff and volunteers are always on hand to provide additional information when requested.  Many National Parks, attractions, and museums have been using this unique visitor tool for several years.  Now, visitors to our museum can enjoy the same unique experience!  (Support for the Tour-Mate Audio System is, in part, from the Westmoreland County Tourism Grant Program that is administered by the Laurel Highlands Visitors Bureau, and the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor.)


BIG Blue Blocks arrive at Lincoln Highway Experience

child blue blocksImagine a playground with just a few kids engaged, while others wait for their turn to swing or go down the slide.    



  • Now imagine a portable/pop-up playground with 165 soft, super-sized pieces of blue foam shapes that are stored in two containers on wheels that can be unloaded in 5 minutes.

  • Finally, imagine the awesome experience ALL children will have when they play with them at the same time; there’s no waiting! These big blue blocks inspire children to design their own inventions and to work together.  The blocks create an environment of open-ended, free play.


The Lincoln Highway Experience museum will be creating a safe designated outdoor space for little ones and their Big Blue Blocks.  Watch for more information on special days for different age groups; as well as when the Blocks ‘travel’ to Lincoln Highway Schools and Communities along our 200-mile Corridor.   (Support for the Imagination Playground is, in part, from the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Partnership Program and the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor.)
