John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley NHC https://www.nps.gov/blac/index.htm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackstone_River_Valley_National_Heritage_Corridor The John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor is dedicated to the history of the early American Industrial Revolution, including mill towns stretching across 24 cities and towns near the river's course in Worcester County, Massachusetts and Providence County, Rhode Island. The Blackstone River runs from Worcester, MA to Providence, RI. Its waters powered the Slater Mill in Pawtucket, RI, America's first successful cotton spinning mill. This creative spark began the nation's transformation from Farm to Factory. Today, the Blackstone River Valley is a special type of National Park - a living landscape containing thousands of natural and historic treasures. The Heritage Corridor is in Linwood Mill Suite #10, located on Linwood Avenue in the town of Northbridge, MA. It is just to the northwest of the intersection of Linwood Avenue and Rt. 122.
