Places to Remember
National heritage corridors are special places designated by Congress.
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 for tomorrow. They protect corridor environments so they will be good places to live. They keep traditions alive to provide the cultural roots to help anchor society.
