Across the country, National Heritage Areas and their partners are reviving historic downtowns, preserving battlefields and industrial sites, and telling our nation’s history in innovative ways.
National Heritage Areas (NHAs) are designated by Congress as places where natural, cultural, and historic resources combine to form a cohesive, nationally important landscape. Through their resources NHAs tell nationally important stories that celebrate our nation's diverse heritage. NHAs are lived-in landscapes. Consequently, NHA entities collaborate with communities to determine how to make heritage relevant to local interests and needs.
There are over 49 National Heritage Areas throughout the country visit one today!
