Latrobe, Pa. -- The Lincoln Highway Experience hosts its first Lincoln Highway Talk of the year on Saturday, February 17 at 1 p.m. at the Lincoln Highway Experience Museum.

Adam Osman of Bedford, Pa will give a presentation entitled “Bedford Coffee Pot & Beyond: Lincoln Highway Giants” which will explore the iconic Lincoln Highway Coffee Pot's history and preservation efforts. The lecture will unravel the challenges and triumphs of this roadside marvel, offering a unique narrative that tells the past, present, and future of the Coffee Pot. Those in attendance will also discover other captivating giants and impressionist architecture along the Lincoln Highway in this condensed odyssey into the heart of America's iconic roadways.

Osman has worked in Bedford County’s tourism industry for many years and has served on a number of boards and committees to promote public awareness and preservation, including the Bedford County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Committee and Bedford Heritage Trust.

The Lincoln Highway Experience hosts presenters like Osman every quarter.

Spencer Simpson, Site Director at the Lincoln Highway Experience, thinks a presentation on the Bedford icon is perfectly timed.

“Many in our community might not know that a restoration effort for the Coffee Pot is currently underway,” Simpson says. “Adam’s familiarity with its history and recent preservation efforts will bring a renewed interest in keeping the legacy of roadside giants alive and well for future generations.”

The cost is $5 per person, with cookies and coffee available for a suggested donation of $1. More information can be found at:

Those in attendance will have the opportunity to tour the museum at a discounted rate. All proceeds benefit the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor.
