Western Reserve Heritage Feasibility Study

Midwest Regional Office » Western Reserve Heritage Feasibility Study » Document List

The purpose of the Western Reserve Heritage Feasibility Study is to determine the feasibility of designating the historic Western Reserve of Ohio as a National Heritage Area(NHA).

A National Heritage Area is a locally managed place designated by Congress where natural, cultural, historical, and recreational resources combine to form a cohesive, nationally distinctive landscape arising from patterns of human activity shaped by geography. NHAs are built on community partnerships and are planned around a region's shared heritage.

The feasibility study was authorized by Congress under 120 STAT. 1846 PUBLIC LAW 109–338, TITLE III—NATIONAL HERITAGE AREA – STUDIES, Subtitle A—Western Reserve Heritage Area Study on OCT. 12, 2006.
