Upper Housatonic Valley National Heritage Area

P.O. Box 493, Salisbury, CT 06068. The upper Housatonic Valley is noted for its scenic landscape and traditional New England towns. Writers, artists, and vacationers have visited the region for over 150 years, making it one of the country's leading cultural resorts. Encompassing 29 communities in the hilly terrain of western Massachusetts and northwestern Connecticut, the upper Housatonic Valley is considered by many to be the quintessence of a civilized, independent, and thoughtful retreat. Under the federal Upper Housatonic National Heritage Area Study Act of 2000, the National Park Service has conducted a study of the suitability and feasibility of establishing the Upper Housatonic Valley National Heritage Area in Connecticut and Massachusetts. The report, addressing eight federal criteria for creating a national heritage area, found that the upper Housatonic Valley is a singular geographical and cultural region. The valley has made significant national contributions through its iron, paper, and electrical equipment industries, its scenic beautification and environmental conservation efforts, and literary, artistic, musical, and architectural achievements.
