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 46 miles of the Blackstone River as it drops 450 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 Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor.

An energetic non-profit, Blackstone Heritage Corridor, Inc. partners with organizations, local communities and businesses, and residents to ensure the long-term vitality of the National Heritage Corridor.
