Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Area Commission
City of Niagara Falls, Niagara County, New York
The Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Area celebrates, interprets, and preserves historic resources associated with the Underground Railroad in the City of Niagara Falls and surrounding region. Since 2011, EDR has provided preservation planning services to the Heritage Area Commission to help them to fulfill their mission. This has included: preparation of a Heritage Area Management Plan, reviewed and approved per § 35.03 of the NYS Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation Law; community and stakeholder outreach and agency consultation; development of the Heritage Area’s website and social media; logo design, branding, and visualizations; managing the development of an interactive walking tour app, and advising the Commission in the development of the Heritage Area Interpretive Center. We are incredibly proud of our role in this unique and inspiring project!
