Waiting for that giant Packard to come by.

[The Void, 10/05/2017]

When the pump was built in 2009 it was intended to mark the site of a future attraction named "The Lincoln Highway Experience." Thus far, it's just the pump.

Giant Lincoln Highway Pump

This 25-foot-high gas pump is one of five Roadside Giants of the Lincoln Highway. The steel pump, weighing nearly 5,000 pounds, represents a 1940s Bennett gas pump.

The site where the sculpture is located was formerly a service station and is the future home of the Lincoln Highway Experience, being planned by the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor.

Gas Pump.

1940 Bennett Gas Pump Sculpture

Eastern Westmoreland Career & Technology Center in Latrobe, PA created the 1940s Bennett Gas Pump (25 ft. high and weighs over 4,900 lbs). This Roadside Giant of the Lincoln Highway was installed at the future site of the Lincoln Highway Experience, in Ligonier Township at the intersection of Routes 30 West and 259 North.

The students chose the gas pump design because the installation site is the former home of Donato's Filling Station (1930s-1940s).
