The story of Freedom’s Way National Heritage Area is intimately tied to the character of the land as well, as those who shaped and were shaped by it. Their stories can be found on village commons, along scenic roadways lined with stone walls, in diaries and artifacts, in a cabin by a pond, along a battle road, or hidden deep within a secret glen by the bank of a meandering river. Known or yet to be revealed, these stories provide a narrative that links the past to the future, reinforcing the region’s sense of place.

Working in partnership with the National Park Service, National Heritage Areas are places that tell a rich and distinctly American story. As the coordinating entity for the Freedom’s Way National Heritage Area, the Freedom’s Way Heritage Association connects the people, places and communities of the Heritage Area through preservation, conservation and educational initiatives to protect and promote shared resources and encourage residents and visitors to explore the landscape, history and culture of the region.
