Roadside America has been an iconic roadside attraction in Shartlesville, PA for generations. Coined the "world's greatest indoor miniature village", Roadside America envelopes over 200 years of American history throughout its 6,000 square feet of miniature buildings, railroads, and landscaping. The display is enough to captivate and impress visitors of all ages.

While the display contains over 2,000 feet of miniature railroad track, it is much more than the average model train layout. Our historic exhibit contains over 300 buildings, all hand-crafted by a single man through his lifetime. The oldest piece in our display is well over 100 years old! The miniature village at Roadside America also features real flowing waterways and waterfalls, push button animations for visitors to interact with, 3 different viewing levels, and a self-guided educational tour which describes the many points of interest throughout the exhibit.

Perhaps the most impressive element of Roadside America is the night pageant. Running approximately every half hour and lasting about 5 minutes in duration, the night scene here at Roadside America is not to be missed. The lights in the display are dimmed, the street lights come on, and patriotic music carries visitors through a full night cycle in the village.
