The Enduring Legacy:
The Blackstone Heritage Corridor Visitor Center at Worcester will serve as a gateway to the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor, the Blackstone River Valley National Historical Park, and the City of Worcester. It will provide visitors and residents a connection to recreational, historical, cultural and geographic attractions throughout the region.
More than a park, the Visitor Center is an interpretive and cultural destination for the region. Here, we will provide connections to Worcester neighborhoods, walking trails and bikeways, and access to the Blackstone River and the Blackstone Canal. Exhibits will explore Worcester’s “Enduring Legacy” of innovation and invention, immigration, ethnicity, cultural traditions, transportation and industrial history, changes to architecture and landscapes, and environmental sustainability. The Visitor Center will invite tourists, families, and recreational enthusiasts to explore Worcester and the surrounding region’s cultural organizations, eateries, and businesses. This multi-use facility will also serve as the headquarters of the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation in the Central Region.
