Lasting Landmarks of PA Route 6
Lasting Landmarks Tell Tales of PA Route 6 Past
Whether by bridge, waterway, highway, or rail, the historic transportation landmarks along the corridor transport you back to a time when life may have been slower, but no less exciting!
Northern Pennsylvanians work hard to preserve, restore, and celebrate the many historical sites and buildings in our Heritage Communities so visitors can experience the stories they tell of the people who built, used, and lived in them.
Whether a railfan, history buff, or grandparent looking to make memories with the grandkids, you’ll find awesome examples of railroad history along PA Route 6!
