Quick Facts

The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L) includes Bucks, Lehigh, Northampton, Carbon, and Luzerne counties in Pennsylvania.

D&L works with government entities, non-profit organizations, commercial entities, residents, and visitors to the Corridor to:

  • Conserve the historic transportation system of canals and overland railroads, and amplify the recreational and educational opportunities based on them.
  • Broadly tell the story of the region by strengthening the infrastructure for interpretation and education.
  • Establish a framework for stewardship which will preserve significant historic sites, collections and archives, enhance recreation, and conserve the natural and cultural environment.
  • Provide opportunities for capitalizing on the Corridor’s rich heritage as a means for development and revitalization.
