McConnellsburg in Fulton County, Pennsylvania — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Pleasures of Roadside Dining
Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor
Located at the fork of Route 16 and “The Lincoln Way -the Road Without Toll,” Johnnie's Motel was built in the 1940s to serve the many motorists passing through McConnellsburg. The motel's neon sign advertises “rooms with private showers!” Business prospered at the diner and motel as travelers needed not only good food, but a place to rest their heads. These types of rest stops became popular all along the Lincoln Highway. The diner's home-cooked meals continue to be a draw.
