Lincoln Highway class offered in Gettysburg

August 30, 2010

A 2-day Lincoln Highway course is being offered in this fall by the Continuing Education division at HACC-Gettysburg Campus.

“Lincoln Highway: Past and Present” will run Wednesday, Sept. 28, 6-9 pm, and Saturday, Oct. 2, 8 am–6 pm. Cost is $65 and deadline to register is Sept. 22.

For 200 years, Americans had been fascinated by the thought of practical, coast-to-coast travel. The first successful attempt was the Lincoln Highway, a patchwork of trails, roads, and main streets, which would have a dramatic impact on this country. Students will examine the history, development and decline of the highway and its impact on everyday life. The class includes a field trip along the Lincoln Highway as far east as Coatesville.
