The Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor opened the doors of its Lincoln Highway Experience on Friday for a holiday open house featuring artisan demonstrations, music, refreshments and a display of antique Christmas decorations.

The smell of spiced cider wafted through the quaint rooms of the circa-1815 Johnston House in Unity, where the museum is housed. Welcoming guests were LHHC Executive Director Olga Herbert, office managerKristin Poerschke and volunteers Cindy Fiorina and Bruce Shirey.

Poerschke said a steady stream of guests visited throughout the afternoon. Those coming toward evening were treated to a concert of seasonal music by Latrobe Elementary School students, under the direction of Debbie King.

Also on hand were noted regional artists Kathy Trexel Reed, Bridget Mayak, Eileen Stoner and Alexis Dillon, who are involved in the Handmade Along the Highway program and whose wares are among many featured in the museum shop.

Seen enjoying the “Experience”: Rob King, Richard Stoner, Robert and Kimberly Gamble, Nancy Spencer, Janet McMall, Laurie Jacobson, Ron and Sue Firment, Rege andGail Kessler, Melissa Toy with infant son Charles, Joyce Ernst and Jim and Carole Blair.
