Our small nonprofit organization works in a big region (200 miles) along the historic Lincoln Highway in south-central PA. We work with other nonprofit attractions and municipalities to promote and preserve the Lincoln Highway. A few examples:
1) Lincoln Highway road signs;
2) Lincoln Highway educational projects with elementary students (Lincoln Highway book-covers), middle school students (Lincoln Highway Road Trip board game), and high school Career and Technology students (Roadside Giants of the Lincoln Highway) along our Corridor;
3) restoration of the 1927 Coffee Pot in Bedford; and
4) the 200-mile Lincoln Highway Roadside Museum.
We also host the 5,000 sq. ft. Lincoln Highway Experience museum in Latrobe, PA; the largest museum in the US dedicated to telling the Lincoln Highway story.
How is your organization funded?
Designated by PA Governor Tom Ridge in 1995, the 501c3 (nonprofit) Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor is one of 12 designated Heritage Areas. This Program is administered by the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, who assists all Heritage Areas with competitive grants. Western PA private foundations have also been invested in the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor over the last 25 years.
Moving us forward with Marketing assistance is the Westmoreland Country Tourism Grant Program, administered by the Laurel Highlands Visitors Bureau. This opportunity is credited with funding the development of this website.
Individuals from near and far have always come through 'filling the gap' for our projects. We are most grateful.
We have never lived large; and we can stretch a dollar better than anyone, but we need it first!
We take all steps to protect and ensure the safety of our supporters. We do not sell or otherwise disclose information about our volunteers or supporters outside of our immediate organization. This policy has no exceptions. We do not sell or exchange your information with any other organizations, public, private, or nonprofit.
