Western Reserve Heritage Feasibility Study
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.
