D&L National Heritage Corridor Earns Smithsonian Institution Partnership

The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor is America’s first National Heritage Area to receive an important partnership designation from the Smithsonian Institution.
The D&L will announce the designation on June 3 at 11:00 am at the National Canal Museum, located in Easton’s Hugh Moore Park, 2750 Hugh Moore Park Road, Easton, Northampton County.
The announcement stems from the D&L and the National Canal Museum’s recent merger. The D&L preserves the historic pathway that carried anthracite and iron from Wilkes-Barre to Philadelphia.
Today, the Corridor and 165-mile D&L Trail are a vital connection to nature, recreation, our nation’s industrial heritage, and more than $250 million in annual economic impact. The National Canal Museum is a regional leader in educational programming for children and adults.
The announcement on June 3 will coincide with National Trails Day on the D&L Trail and the National Canal Museum’s 2017 season opening. The Museum’s special exhibit, The Hidden History of Island Park will open to the public on the same day.
