Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor

The region was designated a National Heritage Corridor in 1986 because of its significant contribution to the industrialization of the country - Birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution. That was possible because of the unique nature of the Blackstone River and its watershed.

The Blackstone Heritage Corridor is located in south-central Massachusetts and northern Rhode Island. It is composed of 25 cities and towns, including the 2nd and 3rd largest cities in New England - Providence, RI, and Worcester, MA. Although the story of the American Industrial Revolution is critically important, there are many more stories of history and culture throughout the 465,000-acre region.

It is a place to find...to discover...to be captivated. And once so captivated, to do something!

Let's Discover and GO!
