Shortly after the Pennsylvania Turnpike opened in 1941, Snyder's Gateway Inn was one of the first businesses to appear. Merle and Marian Snyder opened the restaurant shortly before World War II began and eventually supplied fuel to the military convoys. The Turnpike exit at Breezewood was one of the original eleven interchanges, which transformed the rural small town into a tourism capital. The town was a crossroads where people were looking for a ride or a transfer. This stretch of the Lincoln Highway is now enhanced with Motels and restaurants and is considered "the gateway to the south," hence the name Gateway. The Gateway Travel Plaza provides a wide range of accommodations including lodging, dining, retail and rest areas.
