The National Road Heritage Corridor is one of Pennsylvania’s 12 Heritage Areas as well as a National Scenic Byway "All American Road".
Since its path was first laid, the National Road has been an economic driver for residents and communities along it. As the role of the Road has changed over time, so too have its towns evolved to meet new opportunities and travelers. The National Road Heritage Corridor is proud to be a key cultural heritage partner in this Region of Reinvention and works to keep the National Road driving economic opportunity for decades to come.
- We treat Pennsylvania’s portion of the National Road as a 90-mile museum, offering inclusive, immersive educational experiences that create deeper connections to the heritage of our region and tell a more robust story than typical roadside markers allow.
- We work with cultural assets and communities to preserve and celebrate their heritage and bring it to the attention of visitors (and locals).
- We support artists and makers to ensure they continue to call our region home by linking them with resources, access to markets and capital, and opportunities to create impactful connections within their communities.
