Places to Remember
National heritage corridors are special places designated by Congress. Each is distinctive, selected because it illustrates a significant chapter in the American experience. Hundreds of corridor features and a wealth of individual stories remind us of human events, often shaped by geography, that influenced the course of American history.
National heritage corridors rest on the premise that preservation is a joint effort – governments, businesses, organizations, and individuals all become partners. Each brings talent and resources to the task of remembering the past.
Places to Live
A national heritage corridor is not only a monument to the past. It is alive with tradition. Residents are proud of their past and many have invested years of effort in preserving the distinctive character of their communities.
The Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor is a perfect example of these qualities. The Corridor’s cultural and natural resources help enrich the lives of residents and visitors alike. Recreational opportunities – hiking, bicycling, and boating along the corridor’s canals – are never far from home.
Places for Tomorrow
National heritage corridors are not created for nostalgia alone. They exist
Many partners serve on the Erie Canalway NHC Commission. Both the National Park Service and New York State provide advice and support. The Commission is taking the lead in crafting a vision for this national heritage corridor’s future.
