Olga Herbert, Excecutive Director of the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor will present "Thinkin' Lincoln for 100 Years," in the library's community room. The lecture will include many historic images of the highway, its travelers and roadside attractions, and a viewing of LHHC's new DVD of the history of the Lincoln Highway. (This program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.)
The Lincoln Highway (also know as Route 30) is the theme for this year's Historic Photography Show, selected to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Lincoln Highway. Photographs for the display will include: hotels, restaurants, gas stations, garages and attractions along the route, as well as pictures of the road and older vehicles.
Discover more about the Licoln Highway. The following books (and many more) can be found in our Pennsylvania Room's collection:
The exhibit will be on display inside the Pennsylvania Room and in the hallway. However, there will also be items in the outside window case near the library’s main entrance.
The mission of the Historic Photography Show (as well as the smaller shows held throughout the year) is to present a facet of Ligonier Valley history that is interesting, educational and may have been overlooked in the past. In addition, the photographs and documents copied become a permanent part of the Pennsylvania Room collection. This is an ideal manner of preserving our history and provides patrons with a strong base from which to conduct research.
