National Heritage Area
The Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area raises to national prominence the historic, cultural and natural resources within this region and to tell the stories of the men and women who chose to put their lives and livelihoods on the line, generation after generation, in the name of creating this country and sustaining democracy.
This Feasibility Study was prepared to determine the feasibility of the Journey Through Hallowed Ground as a National Heritage Area. The Study is in support of Senate Bill 2645 and House Bill 5195, the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area Act of 2006. A Senate hearing on the bill was held on June 28, 2006.
