Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor

Located in eastern Pennsylvania, this National Heritage Corridor comprises 154 miles of scenic rivers and mountains, historic canals, farms, museums and remnants of early industries and ethnic settlements.

A distinctive identity was developed to represent some of the most prominent features of the Corridor. A complete system of wayfinding, identification and interpretive signage links numerous destinations and promotes a regional sense of place. User-friendly guidelines were developed so both professional and laypeople could utilize the sign designs for the hundreds of destinations in the Corridor.

These standards were adopted by the historic boroughs of Bristol, Morrisville, New Hope and Yardley as part of the Landmark Towns of Bucks County project. This project was designed to help these small towns breathe renewed economic life into their business districts, while preserving and enhancing the industrial and cultural heritage they share.

Notable: The program was one of the first models for other Heritage Corridors across the country.
