The Historic National Road
There are few things in history that call to us across time from the beginnings of our nation. The Historic National Road is one of them. For more than 600 miles it is a landscape of historic, cultural and archaeological significance, scenic beauty and bountiful recreation, and a journey through the lives and fortunes of the people that forged America.
The National Road Heritage Corridor’s multifaceted mission and associated work includes advocating for, building awareness of, and encouraging the conservation of the cultural, historic, natural, and recreational resources along Pennsylvania’s Historic National Road and throughout the region through education and interpretation vis-à-vis community development. Working with partners, the NRHC leverages financial and human capital resources to deliver economic benefit. Fully engaged in restoration and development of key regional assets and amenities that are the lynchpin of a tourism infrastructure, the NRHC’s work supports Pennsylvania’s tourism product – one of the top two leading industry in the Commonwealth.
