Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor

Arches were a common site across the Lincoln Highway route. A Gateway Arch, now removed, spanned Lincoln Way East. The wooden arch greeted travelers as they passed through downtown. It was at this very intersection (Lincoln Highway and U. S. Route 11) when General Robert E. Lee made his decision to ride "east towards Gettysburg" in 1863.

The Chambersburg Heritage Center tells the stories of Franklin County, dating back to the 18th century frontier days through its most significant event - the burning of Chambersburg by the Confederates on July 30, 1864. Following the burning of the town, the reconstruction included building this former Valley National Bank Building in 1915. Visit the Heritage Center to learn more about what makes this area so special.

Follow signs like this to travel the historic route in Pennsylvania and to visit other exhibits along the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor.
