Postcard: "Modern Cabins and Chicken Dinners"

April 12, 2008

The Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor headquartered in Ligonier, Pennsylvania, is cataloging its holdings, and recently came upon this postcard that they could not identify as to location or even if it was in PA.

I mention it in my Lincoln Highway: PA Traveler’s Guide but show a different view (a postcard from Russell Rein, in the book’s first edition, page 297). The cabin camp was 30 miles west of Pittsburgh near Clinton, on the rerouted Lincoln Highway that runs through Chester, West Virginia. A building similar to the one at left survives on the north side, and a cabin is in an adjacent residential back yard.
