Mission Statement

The mission of the Essex National Heritage Commission is to promote partnerships and educational opportunities that enhance, preserve and encourage regional awareness of the historic, cultural and natural resources and traditions of Essex County, MA.

Description

Designated in 1996 by the U.S. Congress, the Essex National Heritage Area covers the 500 square miles of eastern Massachusetts that lies north of Boston. It's not one location, but thousands of historical sites. Not a mile-long beach, but miles and miles of intact landscapes and glistening coastal areas. Not one story and tradition, but lifetimes of rich experiences that chronicle the history of our region, and our nation. As you explore our historic cities and towns and natural areas, you will hear the stories of the people, and the land. Historic seaports and New England town commons; industrial mills and pristine beaches; renowned museums and wildlife refuges; working farms and inviting natural trails - from the North Shore to the Merrimack River Valley, the stories of the Essex National Heritage Area are your stories. It's where beaches sing, mills hum, and you heritage whispers.
