US Route 6 in Pennsylvania, officially known as the PA Route 6 Heritage Corridor, connects the stories of how America grew industrially, socially, and geographically.

You can go anywhere and learn about its history. But, chances are you won't find an area with more historic firsts than that of PA Route 6: the first underground mine, the first steam locomotive, the lighthouse on the Great Lakes and the first billion-dollar oil.

And we won’t mention the people who stepped on this famed highway and left a mark on America. People like well known conservationist Gifford Pinchot to warriors who fought for freedom and composers who gave us favorites like Camptown Races and Winter Wonderland. Even Mark Twain and George Washington spent some time here.

We encourage you to explore these places and learn about the people, products and events that helped shape our state and all of America.
