Our Mission

Delaware & Lehigh - Our Mission

We inspire connections.

Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor preserves, interprets and leverages the nationally significant history of the over 165-mile transportation route between Wilkes-Barre and Bristol, Pennsylvania. By building and maintaining public and private partnerships, we create four vital connections.

We connect people to the enduring industrial heritage of the Corridor through education and preservation of historic sites and cultural resources.

We connect people to health and wellness through outdoor recreation by reclaiming the historic transportation route as the D&L Trail.

We connect towns and cities to opportunities for economic development along the D&L Trail and Corridor.

We connect people to nature and the environment through conservation and education.

We are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion

Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor, Inc. is committed to advancing intentional strategies to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in all aspects of our organization. We are dedicated to eliminating historic barriers as a result of an individual’s race, gender, age, sexual orientation and/or gender identity, and level of physical ability.
