1945. 5104 Lincoln Hwy. (U.S. 30), 2.7 miles east of Schellsburg

The Lincoln Motor Court is a remarkable grouping of twelve small pyramidal-roofed tourist cabins in their original U-shaped configuration around the office and a central parking area. It is very rare to see such early tourist cabins, but even more extraordinary to see them still functioning as a motel. These individual frame cabins are sided with asbestos shingles in varied shades of gray.
