Day 2 Road Trip

After a nice restful, freezing night (the weather was great on our trip but it sure did get chilly at night and we left the cabin windows open!) at the Lincoln Motor Court, we were back on the LHW again. Just down the road we ran across the Pied Piper from what is left of Storyland!

We then came across The Bison Coral with this wonderful 3 sided mural painted on their barn! I didn't see any bison but I did spy a painted gas pump on the other side of the road! I was to lazy to cross the road to get to the other side to take a picture, just trust me, it was there! We were also on a tight schedule as we had a 12 o'clock tour at Kentuck Knob we had to make!

Our next stop was at the sight of the former Ship of the Alleghenies Motel! All that is left is the little plaque with information about the spot and of course the amazing views! The claim is you can see 3 States at once!

We left The Lincoln Highway to head south to Frank Loyd Wright's, Kentuck Knob and Fallingwater. Along the way, I fell in love with all the windmills on the mountain tops in PA! I never knew that PA had windmills! They are huge and crazy and I love them!

We spent the day visiting Kentuck Knob and Fallingwater. I will post those pictures seperately. We stayed the night at The Historic Summit Inn Resort. The inn opened in 1907 and both Thomas Edison and Henry Ford stayed there in 1917! It was a very cool hotel at the top of the mountain. We had a great dinner on the roof top terrace watching the sun go down!

Coming soon....Day 2: Kentuck Knob and Fallingwater pictures!

  1. We fell in love with those windmills too, when we were driving home from Pittsburgh (we also love 'the 'burgh as well!) - we were able to drive right up a road and see them up close. they were massive and so quiet, it was a bit weird. cool but weird.

    Am definitely putting the Historic Summit Inn on my list of places to check out. Or check in-to with Retro Roadhusband!
