COSTELLO AND SHIMKUS INTRODUCE LEGISLATION DESIGNATING A NATIONAL HERITAGE AREA IN SOUTHERN ILLINOIS

U.S. Congressmen Jerry Costello and John Shimkus introduced legislation that would designate a 17-county area of Southern Illinois a National Heritage Area. Heritage Areas are places designated by Congress where natural, cultural, historic and recreational resources combine to form a nationally distinctive landscape arising from patterns of human activity shaped by geography.

The theme,  "Land Between the Rivers: Confluence of Freedom in Southern Illinois", will highlight the region's vital role in U.S. history between the Revolutionary War and the Civil War.  Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and other supporters have completed a feasibility study that shows Southern Illinois has sufficient assets of historic importance to merit the designation, which provides federal funds through the National Park Service to help promote tourism and conservation.
