for the American Industrial Revolution

The Blackstone River Valley

National Heritage Corridor

It’s authentic…the real deal! This is where the American Industrial Revolution began and sent reverberations throughout the country. Follow the 48 miles of the Blackstone River as it drops 438 feet to sea level. Explore the varied habitats of its watershed, the charming towns and villages in the region, and our distinctive culture created by ethnic influences from around the globe. This is the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor.

Blackstone Heritage Corridor, working with community partners, provides strong leadership to preserve, promote and celebrate the Valley’s historic, natural and recreational resources for current and future generations
