More beautiful pictures from Marilyn Armstrong!
When first we moved here from Boston, it was wonderful, but so different.
Although I’d lived in the suburbs and spent most of my vacation time through the years out in the country, I’d never lived so far from a major city nor in a river valley, which has a particular character of its own.
The dominance of the Blackstone both over the ecology of the valley and its economy is hard to over-emphasize.
The Blackstone RiverNational Heritage Corridor is actual part of the National Parks system and includes all the cities in the valley, from Worcester, where the river starts, to Providence where it ends. It is a protected area, though not a park, because so many people live here, but it is considered to be of significant historical importance.
