Today started with a visit to the LHHC office and ended at the giant
teapot in Chester, WV. Kudos to the LHHC for their "200-Mile Roadside
Museum". Anyone traveling between Abbottstown and Huntington would do
well to invest the $2.50 they ask for the driving guide. Without the
guide, keep your eye peeled for those museum displays.
A stop where the Grand View Point Inn used to be and at the Flight 93
A little backtracking to see a "really big shoe" then some hill climbing.
Visits to two former capital cities and a start on the Lincoln Highway
Heritage Corridor. I was quite impressed with my first visit to the
I didn't start in Williamsport and I didn't drive on US-15 and I didn't
head directly to York but instead went to Lancaster, a few miles further
east than York but solidly on the Lincoln Highway.
The Gettysburg battlefield is near the top of my list of unvisited "must
sees" in Pennsylvania and the fact that it is near the eastern end of the
state's 200 mile long
Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor boosts it even more. I've teased
myself with it a little on previous trips but this time I took a serious
look. I'll be starting from Williamsport and US-15 leads directly to
Gettysburg. I may follow it there but I'm more inclined to take Fifteen
only as far as Harrisburg then dash to York on I-83. This would put me a
few miles east of Abbotstown, where the Heritage Corridor starts. At the
west end, I'll stay with the Lincoln Highway a while beyond the official
end of the corridor. Long enough to see that big tea pot in Chester, WV.
Getting to the tea pot will also take me a few miles beyond the crossing
of US-30 and US-22 so I'll have to head southward a little to pick up
US-22 to take me home.
