About Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor


In partnership with the National Park Service, we celebrate
the Blackstone River Valley as the Birthplace of the American Industrial
Revolution.

Start your journey of discovery at the Blackstone River
Valley Heritage Center in Worcester, MA (3 Paul Clancy Way), and visit the
hands-on exhibits to plan your trip through the 25 communities of the National
Heritage Corridor. Follow the 46-mile Blackstone River as it drops 450 feet to
sea level, ending in Providence, RI. Explore the varied habitats of the
watershed, the charming towns and mill villages in the region, and our
distinctive culture created by ethnic influences from around the globe.

From bike paths and kayaking, to nature walks and historic
sites, there’s lots to do in the Blackstone River Valley.
