Essex Heritage

The Essex National Heritage Area, established by an act of the U.S. Congress in 1996, covers the 500 square mile region north of Boston (Essex County) and encompasses thousands of historic, cultural and natural places that were crucial in shaping our nation’s heritage.  

The Essex National Heritage Commission (Essex Heritage) is the nonprofit management organization for the Area and rallies our community around saving its unique character.  We are the only organization that connects the people who live in the 34 cities and towns within our county!  We do this to achieve our mission “to preserve and enhance the historic, cultural and natural resources of Essex County.”
