About the Calumet National Heritage Area
The Calumet Heritage Partnership has initiated a feasibility
study to create a National Heritage Area. According to the National
Park Service, National Heritage Areas (NHAs) are regions "designated
by Congress as places where natural, cultural, and historic resources
combine to form a cohesive, nationally important landscape."
The Calumet Heritage Partnership serves the bi-state Calumet Region
of Indiana and Illinois. It seeks to unite people from both sides
of the state line to help tell the story of the Calumet Region.
