Heritage Parks
Pennsylvania's Heritage Parks are about the eras of steel and iron making, coal mining, the oil boom, canal and road building, blazing the early roads and highways and living off the land. They're about the influx of immigrants, the challenges and triumphs of a determined people and the birth of liberty and independence. They are why Pennsylvania became the Hearth of America. We invite you to learn more and visit our Heritage Parks.
