After the Allegheny Portage Railroad was finished in 1834, there was finally a railway connecting Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Travel time between the two cities had now been reduced from weeks to days.
Weary and hungry passengers traveling between these two cities would have often stopped at the Lemon House, the tavern depicted on this embroidered patch. As visible in the immediate foreground on this patch, the Lemon House sits mere yards from the actual portage rail tracks!
Featuring a double border that displays the name the National Historic Site, as well as bright colors, this embroidered patch is a great gift to the rail fan or historian in your life.
