The Lincoln Highway in
Pennsylvania

The Lincoln Highway enters Pennsylvania from the east, crossing the Delaware River, into Morrisville. Traveling southwest, it parallels U.S. 1 to Philadelphia.

Turning west, the Lincoln Highway follows the old Lancaster Pike Road. This route is now numbered U.S. 30. The highway continues west along U.S. 30 through Lancaster, York, Gettysburg, Chambersburg, Breezewood, Bedford, Greensburg, and Pittsburgh, leaving the state west of Beaver.

The Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor has marked the route through 200 miles in south-central Pennsylvania.

For a detailed description of the highway and superb sites along the way, get a copy of Brian Butko's book (see For More Information).
