For the first time, Fred Beans is getting behind Bucks and Montgomery counties’ National History Day competition, a contest for middle and high school students that is organized and coordinated each year by the Bucks County Historical Society’s Mercer Museum and Spruance Library in Doylestown.
This wonderful exhibit, which takes you on a historical and geographical journey across America, is in its final weeks. Yes, the Mercer Museum’s America’s Road: The Journey of Route 66, is set to close on Sunday, August 24, so make plans now to take yourself and your family to visit before it’s gone.
The iconic, 2,448-mile highway – nicknamed “The Mother Road” by John Steinbeck – is the subject of an exhibit debuting May 31 at the Mercer Museum in Doylestown. America’s Road: The Journey of Route 66 showcases the role the highway played in shaping the automobile culture of the country in the mid-twentieth century.
