About us Created by an act of Congress in 1986, the John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor (the Corridor) is where the industrialization of America began with the first water-powered cotton mill in Pawtucket, RI. The development of mill villages followed along the Blackstone River and its tributaries spreading out across the valley in a pattern that can still be seen and experienced today in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts. The Blackstone Heritage Corridor includes 25 cities and towns in a watershed stretching from Worcester, MA to Narragansett Bay in Providence, RI. The Blackstone Heritage Corridor has many historic sites as well as fabulous recreational opportunities on land and water.
