Heritage Area Corridors



National Herritage Area Corridors

National Heritage Areas are places where historic, cultural and natural resources combine

to form cohesive, nationally important landscapes. Unlike national parks, National Heritage

Areas are large live-in landscapes which expand on traditional approaches to resource

stewardship by supporting large-scale, community driven initiatives that connect local citizens

to the preservation and planning process.
