Pennsylvania Lincoln Highway Original Businesses

From the Somerset County (Pa) Daily American "Lincoln Highway helped to build America" by Daniel Draper.

The Lincoln Highway was dedicated Oct. 31, 1913.  Not many original businesses are left.

In Somerset County there are motels like the Wishing Well Motel in Jennerstown and Camp Allegheny in Stowstown.

Duppstadt's Country Store opened in 1904 in Buckstown.

One of Somerset County's most famous places is gone and that would be the SS Grandview Ship Hotel destroyed by fire in 2001.  It was built in the 1930s.  Lincoln Highway author Brian Butko has written a book about it.
